Research Overview

To understand what facilitates or hinders an individual's ability to cope with adversity is the underlying essence of Dr. DeMaso’s work in the field of pediatric psychosomatic medicine. Children and families facing the stresses of having physical illnesses have been at the center of his research. In the rush to care for the physical needs of ill youngsters, the impact of their illnesses on their emotional development, family supports, and even their caregivers, is often forgotten. Given the nearly 20 million American children facing chronic physical illnesses, the promotion of successful coping in those families facing serious pediatric illnesses is of vital public health importance. The development of successful adaptation is dependent on empirical studies that integrate biological, psychological, and social constructs together to understand the full impact of physical illnesses on children. Dr. DeMaso’s current research involves such an approach where imaging, psychiatric, and neuropsychologic techniques are used to understand and intervene with youngsters facing pediatric heart diseases.
