I value the opportunity to provide support and introduce coping skills to children, adolescents and their families with chronic medical conditions. Those with chronic medical conditions are at an increased risk of adverse mental and physical health outcomes. I want to help children learn to cope with their chronic health condition and to facilitate resilience/autonomy for managing a health condition.
