Session 8 focuses on improving family communication, so important to improving your confidence in becoming more independent in managing both the challenges of your medical condition as well as you lifestyle as a teen. You and your family will be engaged in a discussion of parent and teen roles in the family and how the your illness has impacted and changed these roles. To expand on improving family communication skills, “misguided support” and “strong beliefs” are introduced and explored to better understand how these may unintentionally serve to make it harder to increase your feelings of confidence and skills in moving toward the greater independence needed for transitioning to young adulthood.
