A Look into the Psychological Treasure Chest of Lymphology

Saturday, May 4, 8:10am – 10:00am
This presentation will provide a variety of helpful tools that will make lymphedema treatment easier, more joyful, and more successful. It will explain the importance of evaluating one’s own attitudes towards obesity and lipedema and suggest ways to talk with patients in a respectful way that encourages behavioral changes. Good questions can “taste like kisses;” they can open minds, help to find new perspectives, wake up sleeping resources and create new solutions. Tools will be provided for shifting focus away from symptoms and problems towards resources and solutions. Methods for avoiding professional burn-out will also be discussed.
