About this Webinar

Meeting the medical and psychological needs of a child experiencing PANS / PANDAS can pose significant challenges for families. Obtaining a proper diagnosis, coordinating the care of a treatment team, following treatment recommendations, and understanding what may seem, at times, to be an unpredictable pattern of symptoms while maintaining the daily activities and responsibilities of all family members proves difficult for many. In addition to accessing multidisciplinary treatment, parents have the ability to maximize treatment success and family quality of life by understanding key concepts and applying specific behavioral strategies in the household. This workshop will discuss what parents can do to effectively address their child’s anxiety and distress as well as improve family functioning.

In this webinar, participants will learn strategies to:

  1. Increase supportive communication
  2. Decrease accommodating behaviors
  3. Set healthy boundaries
  4. Improve individual and systemic functioning
