|Sometimes families facing cancer and
serious blood disorders require support that goes beyond that offered
by our Child Life/Creative Arts team and social workers. To meet
this need, Tomorrows Children’s Fund also provides psychological
services from doctoral-trained, state licensed professionals on a
consultative basis to children and their loved ones. These encompass:
- Psychological assessment and diagnosis.
- Individual and family psychotherapy, including cognitive-behavior.
models, insight oriented therapy and hypnotherapy.
- Pain and symptom management.
Together, these psychosocial services from Tomorrows Children’s
Fund comprise a comprehensive support plan for those struggling to
cope with the issues surrounding childhood cancer and serious blood
disorders. And always, our goal is to help children and families
find the strength they need to accept, understand and fight these diseases.
