A child with anxiety issues develops an eating disorder, another who suffers from concussion syndrome becomes withdrawn and fearful of speaking in class. Recognizing the interconnection between medical and psychological conditions is vital to supporting the whole child. Please join us as we welcome Dr. Dana Lehman who will help parents understand the relationship between medical and psychological needs.
Dr. Dana Lehman received her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Widener University with a concentration in health psychology. She served as Director of the Eating Disorder Day Treatment program at the Belmont Center for Comprehensive Treatment, Director of Integrative Medicine at Care Coordination Services, and currently has a private practice in Center City Philadelphia where she provides psychotherapy and consultative services with a focus on eating disorders, sexuality, and chronic illness.
