  • Evaluating and understanding the individual child’s situation
  • How to help the patient and family master the current stresses
  • Understanding of the individual with respect to:
    • General concepts of child development
    • Emotional aspects of illness and of their management.

Special emphasis is placed on methods of supporting mastery by patients and their families mastery – including preventative measures and means of follow-up support.
