Psychological Support

Within the Centre there is specific educational and psychological support for problems surrounding food allergy. The psychologist provides support and psycho-educational information to help in the everyday management of food allergy at home, at school, and in free time, so that patients and their families can live and enjoy the normal experiences of growing up. The services offered include psychological interviews for patients and their parents, therapeutic groups, support and discussion groups for children, adolescents and parents. Such interventions are offered to young patients and their families along with ample space for reflection, comparison and support regarding the emotional-relational problems arising from the management of food allergy, with particular attention paid to the evaluation and the improvement of quality of life through the reduction of discomfort which this disease can cause and the efficient use of resources and personnel.
