Description

Children and adolescents diagnosed with cancer face months to years of chemotherapy, sometimes including radiation and surgery. These life-altering disruptions place demands on children, teens and their parents.

The diagnosis is usually stunning and unwelcome, followed rapidly by tests, treatments and lots of information. Yet helping children, teens and families cope with this unexpected and unwelcome intruder is vital to physical and psychosocial health.

Listen in as Kristin Stegenga, PhD explores typical patterns of coping among children and adolescents while touching on the role of parent and family coping in these patterns. Ideas for supporting children and teens will also be discussed.
