Speaker: Robert H. Phillips, Ph.D.

When you’re first diagnosed with lupus, you will hear about treatment options and the importance of preventing flares—but you may not hear that lupus can have an emotional effect on you as well. You may feel overwhelmed, frustrated, sad, and anxious, but the good news is there are ways to help you cope with those feelings. Join us for this teleconference with Robert H. Phillips, Ph.D., founder and director of the Center for Coping, author of the Coping with Lupus and Lupus Q&A books and a licensed psychologist as he addresses important questions one might have and offers practical coping strategies to help those with lupus live their lives to the fullest.
