In this episode, Vanessa and Emily speak with Celiac Disease Program Psychologist Dr. Shayna Coburn to discuss the ways that families can be affected psychologically by a diagnosis of celiac disease. They'll discuss support systems for parents handling a child newly diagnosed and tips for discussing the condition with other family members and friends. What problems could parents encounter with their child as they go to school, birthday parties, etc? How should parents counsel their children to discuss celiac disease with their peers?
