Tip of the Week: Relationships

August 24, 2018

I am heading to Munich this weekend for the International Prader-Willi Syndrome Organization’s Caregivers’ Conference. I have the honor of presenting a workshop on relationships and sexuality to caregivers from over 25 countries. As providers and caregivers, we have the unique responsibility to help those diagnosed with PWS to learn to make and maintain healthy relationships throughout their life and development – a responsibility that takes time, patience, and coaching but has tremendous rewards.

 

Patrice Carroll is Latham Centers’ world-renowned Prader-Willi syndrome specialist. She works with Latham’s residents with PWS, their families, and consultants, continuously learning and teaching about PWS best practices. Do you have questions for our PWS specialist?
