Millions of Americans suffer chronic and serious medical illnesses that impact their self-esteem, daily functioning, and most cherished relationships.
In this 90-minute teleconference, therapists will learn how to prevent illness from consuming clients' lives, preserve and deepen family bonds through medical adversity, and serve as a guide to our complex and at times perplexing health care system.
In this teleconference, case transcripts will be used to illustrate a systemic and collaborative approach that draws on clients' spiritual, religious, and cultural values. Special attention will be paid to building a psychotherapy practice by partnering with physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals.
Declaration identifying any potential conflict of interest and/or commercial support: None.
