Presentation Description:

There are a wide variety of strategies that may decrease distress, allow for optimal medical care, and enhance quality of life for both children and their families.

This presentation reviewed a range of multi-disciplinary interventions including psycho-education, procedural support, cognitive behavioral therapy, and parent problem-solving therapy, as well as psychopharmacology approaches to behavioural problems.
