PTSD and Post-traumatic Growth After Childhood Cancer

Dr. Lamia Barakat discusses the ways childhood cancer affects the child, parents and siblings, focusing on the experience of post-traumatic stress symptoms and post-traumatic growth — the perceived benefits that come out of the experience of childhood cancer. This was the first event in the First Steps Toward Healing webinar series, developed by the Cancer Center at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
