Introduction

Young people go through complicated psychological changes during adolescence. These changes influence their psychosexual development, their personal identity and the way they process information about themselves, their world and the future. This has an impact on their behaviour and choices they make about their health care.

Understanding where young people are in relation to these changes has important implications on how to communicate with them and on their ability to manage complex long-term illness regimens.

This session will review the reciprocal impact of changes in psychological development in adolescence including cognitive and emotional development. The session will also consider what impact these developmental changes have on self-management of long-term illness during adolescence.
