  • Disease-related education (“psychoeducation”) – a supportive, educational process designed to enhance understanding of the disease and promote adaptive coping strategies
  • Diagnosis and treatment of emotional and/or cognitive problems
  • Family Interventions designed to support family members’ efforts to cope with illness-related challenges
  • Support for people’s efforts to remain productively employed as long as they want to and are able
  • Connection to available resources for your patients, including comprehensive information about the Affordable Care Act
A variety of tools and resources are available to support your clinical work.
