Described by many CF parents as “life-changing,” you'll discover what to do and what to avoid when raising a child with CF.
As the mom of two children with cystic fibrosis and a certified family life educator, Lisa Greene shares her personal experience and professional training.

Parenting Children with Health Issues: Strategies for Raising Healthier, Happy Kids™

Patient-Parent-Clinician Relationships: Why they Matter and How to Build Them™
This presentation teaches parents and patients how to speak up for self/ child's needs in the medical system and create strong partnerships with medical teams to achieve better health outcomes.
Put on Your Life Jacket: Tools and Tips for Self-Care and Coping with a Diagnosis
Self-care is critical when care giving and yet it's one area where "shortcuts" are common resulting in caregiver burnout. We discuss grief models, create a support map (matching different types of support), and discuss coping/ stress management skills.
Balancing Quality of Life with the Burden of CareComplex medical regimens take a lot of time and energy. Organization is a key to successfully managing it all AND achieving a QoL (based on the Flanagan Quality of Life Scale). We discuss tools and tips for organizing and managing the many different facets of family life including money, time, and home with a focus on living well with chronic illness.
Transitions: Preparing Kids for the Real World™
Discover when and how to help kids take on age-appropriate responsibility for their self-care choices and discover what to do when kids don't want to take on that responsibility. A successful transition process begins when kids are old enough to throw peas from the high chair! Lisa can present this subject with or without a medical issue emphasis.
Keeping Hope Alive: The Essentials for Raising a Child with Special Needs™
When a child is diagnosed with a special need of any kind, parents experience many challenges. This presentation will help parents avoid hope-killers and discover hope-builders including practical parenting solutions for creating peaceful, happier homes.

Take a close-up, insider look at the complexities facing today's families as they meet the needs of caring for a child with medical issues.
