Mothers who have been diagnosed with breast cancer (or other serious medical conditions) often express concerns about their children. Julie Barrington is a Clinical Psychologist working at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre; she has extensive experience in working with children with emotional and behavioural problems and their families. In this session, Julie will touch on areas of concern frequently raised by parents, including, how do I tell children about my illness; how can I help my children to cope; what is "normal" behaviour; how can I help an anxious child and how do I know when I should ask for help.
