Session 6 is a family-focused session. In these family sessions you and your parent(s) will be seen together for all, or at least a major part, of the session. When a teen has a chronic medical problem it affects everyone in the family. The activities for these sessions are designed to begin the process of helping you and your family better understand the importance of helping put medical challenges in perspective while balancing these needs with the important experiences for teens to have to remain confident and competent in their lives. Workbook exercises and worksheets are used to identify how your lifestyle and activity schedule have been affected by your medical condition. This information is then used to help you and your parent(s) generate ways for increasing your activities and independence so important to this stage of your life.
