On June 19, 2006, The National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome
hosted a day-long symposium in Kyoto, Japan. This syposium is held to discuss Infant Crying as a Trigger for Shaken Baby Syndrome:
A Tragic Deviation in Infant Development.

The ISIS Conference has resulted in an exceptional opportunity to offer a unique one-day pre-conferennce on shaken baby syndrome resulting from inappropriate responses to normal infant crying and behavior.
