Connecting the Dots: Using behavioural and cognitive psychology to support teens with IEMs – It’s a social world

Episode 5,  Oct 20, 2021, 12:14 PM

This is the second of a 3 part mini series about the teenage brain, its development and how to best support our teens with inborn errors of metabolism.

On episode 2 we will focus on self-identity and the social world. Teens are building their self-identity and much of teen brain power is answering the question ‘who am I?” They might re-consider their condition and what it means to them. They might re-experience the first impact of their diagnosis on a more complex and painful level, resulting in un-resolved feelings.

We will discuss ways to intervene based on the science and from clinical experience.
