Psychosocial Aspects of Food Allergy Among Adolescents
Speaker: Linda Herbert, PhD
Wednesday, July 13, 1 p.m. ET
Food allergy management can be stressful for parents of children of all ages, but adolescence poses some unique challenges. This webinar is intended for parents of children with food allergies who are interested in learning more about food allergy-related psychosocial concerns during this developmental stage, such as stress, anxiety, peer issues, and transitioning food allergy management from parent to teen. Dr. Linda Herbert, a clinical psychologist at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., will discuss these common challenges and provide guidelines on how to address these unique food allergy concerns.
