Patients and families facing serious pediatric illnesses face a unique and challenging experience, including disruption of normal physical, mental and social development. The impacts can be long-lasting. Patients, siblings, and parents may be at risk for anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress. In some cases they may be less likely to achieve milestones such as attending school, gaining independence or forming close friendships. In this session you will learn ways to help children, teens, and young adults – and their parents – become more resilient in the face of serious health problems. The goal is to equip patients and families with skills that improve their outcomes and help them lead happier, more fulfilling lives.
