Session 9 involves a review with you and your parent(s) of the individual skills you have acquired in Children’s Health and Illness Recovery Program (CHIRP) and providing guidance aimed at avoiding a relapse in your improvement. Key components of CHIRP are emphasized as they apply to your “Working Toward a Normal Daily Schedule.” The benefits of improved sleep and activity level, increased social contacts with peers, and increased comfort in assertively communicating with others are reinforced as critical for continued progress. Your parents are encouraged to support and trust your efforts in becoming more independent in managing various aspects of your medical condition, as well as in your decision making in setting a personal schedule and making lifestyle choices. Family members are strongly encouraged to continue to follow family rules for communicating about symptoms and resolving conflicts as discussed in the CHIRP sessions.
