When illness enters the picture, it has a profound impact on not just the patient and family caregiver separately, but on the connection between them. And that connection, that relationship, can be a source of support, or depletion, for the partners. Based on research for her book, Love in the Time of Chronic Illness: How to Fight the Sickness, Not Each Other, Barbara will describe the ways illness affects the patient/caregiver relationship, and approaches they, and the clinicians who care for them, can use to strengthen the relationship resilience needed to cope with the challenges of illness.
There is no fee to attend this event; however, pre-registration is required, as seating is limited. If you prefer to register by phone, please call 415-885-3693.
