Dyadic Coping: Managing Caregiving Stress as a Couple

February 15, 2023, 8 PM EST

All relationships face stress, but partners caring for a child with a serious illness are confronted with unique challenges. Each person in the relationship may cope differently. You may feel closer to, or more distance from, your partner over time.  Communication with one another about how each responds to stress and grief, and what kind of support each person needs, can help increase understanding.  Dr. Talia Zaider, a licensed psychologist and marriage and family therapist, will offer insights and considerations for coping together. Hear from caregivers on how they have coped alongside their partners.  There will be an opportunity to ask questions and share.
