Francesca Cuzzocrea has her expertise in evaluation and improving the health and wellbeing. More specifically she has involved in the educational field with particular reference behavioural analysis. She has, therefore, designed and built some parent training of parents of disabled people and families at risk. In cooperation with the Pediatric Surgery Unit of University Hospital of Messina directed by Prof. Carmelo Romeo, Prof. Larcan and Prof. Cuzzocrea verify the efficacy of this psychological support to ensure continuous improvement in hospital practices, always with the main aim of reducing the emotional distress and promoting the welfare of children and parents. For these reasons, they have also developed a specific interest in “Paediatric interventions” to guarantee well-being in typically and untypically child development and to prevent behavioural problems through the parent education.
