People of all races, genders, ethnicities, and sexual orientations are living with multiple sclerosis (MS). This webinar focuses on culturally sensitive, strength-based interventions to increase resiliency and enable clients with MS to better self-manage and more fully participate in their healthcare and family, community, and work life. Neuropsychological considerations and mind/body interventions for symptom management will be introduced. There are similarities between MS and other autoimmune disorders so some information may be helpful in working with other populations.
- List common symptoms of MS that can present as psychological diagnoses or resistance.
- Identify two interventions for management of common MS symptoms.
- Identify cognitive challenges that may impact a client’s capacity to participate in therapy.
