Heidelise Als, PhD, Professor of Psychology Children's Hospital Boston

Heidelise Als received an MS in Education from the Graduate School of Education, University of Pennsylvania and a PhD in Human Learning and Development from the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, University of Pennsylvania. Her postgraduate training took place at the Child Development Unit at Children's Hospital Boston. Dr. Als is a developmental, educational, and licensed clinical psychologist with over 30 years of experience in undertaking and managing major research efforts involving high risk and preterm infants and families in medical settings, and in longitudinal follow-up. 

She furthermore holds a research associate appointment in Newborn Medicine at the Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, and an adjunct pediatric psychology appointment at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston. In 1987, she received the Award of Excellence of the Boston Institute for the Development of Infants and Parents, in 1988 the Senator D'Amico Award of the Massachusetts Early Intervention Consortium, and in 1995 CINN-Elekta Decade of the Brain Award. She is the founder and President of the NIDCAP Federation International, a non-profit organization which provides national and international training for advanced professionals in the field of NICU developmental care implementation.

 

"The goal of my work is to increase knowledge and understanding of all human development, to improve the lives of the most vulnerable newborn populations and their families, and to assure that the opportunities they have allow them to fulfill their potentials to lead fulfilling lives. My research and clinical observations have convinced me that all human beings have rich inner lives that must be supported to unfold and thrive or will be thwarted diminished by the care, opportunities and environments they encounter. Every human being continuously attempts to be the best they can be, no matter how their current actions express themselves. This humbles me as clinician and researcher; I believe in the human condition and its unlimited capacity for transformation. This conviction carries my work and continues to characterize my personal and professional journey."
