Transforming the Devastating Diagnosis

Some events in life have such a tremendous impact that life is viewed as “before” and “after” this life-changing occurrence. For some, that event was a child’s diagnosis of life-threatening food allergies.

Even after learning how to read labels, bake “safe” cupcakes, and wipe down airplane seats, many allergy parents still struggle with feelings of guilt, fear, sadness and anger, and are overwhelmed for months or even years after their child’s initial diagnosis.

In this session, participants will learn about the “Cycle of Change,” a framework for adjusting to life with food allergies. Each stage requires a different perspective and strategies for adapting to a “new normal” life while caring for oneself in the process.
