Evidence Based Approaches to Family Intervention

Given the family's central role in responding to and managing pediatric physical illness, family interventions have been implemented in the following categories: 1) education programs; 2) psychoeducational programs; and 3) psychotherapy. The range of outcomes measured in these interventions has included illness knowledge and management, physiological measures of disease activity, and psychological well-being of the ill child, siblings, and parents.

These interventions have also been classified based on the study sample (e.g., families experiencing poor medical outcomes or families either with or without problems with behavioral adaptation in the ill child or family members). Interventions are generally designed to prevent psychosocial problems, to enhance general adaptation, and/or to decrease specific problems identified at the time of the intervention.
