Here at the CSPA, we strive to improve the lives of people affected by skin, hair and nail conditions – both patients and loved ones alike. To support this goal, the CSPA is pleased to announce the launch of our Self-Empowerment Toolkit, a series of resources to educate, guide, and support skin patients and those around them.
The first resource, Talking to Kids: How to Talk to Children, Youth, and Adult Children About Your Skin Condition, is an infographic booklet that dives into why it’s important to talk to children about your health condition and how to do so in a way that is age appropriate and relevant to the child. This guide is designed for parents, teachers, coaches, and other adults with skin, hair or nail conditions. Our goal is that it will help to open communication channels between adults and youth so that they may have a better understanding of the impact of the condition on their life and the ability to cope with those impacts in a positive way into the future.
