INTERACTIVE ONLINE FORUMS LED BY FOOD ALLERGY EXPERTS
From time to time The Allergy Team hosts a series of online workshops. These are small group forums, focusing on a particular area associated with living with a food allergy and led by experts.
The most recent workshop series was on the subject of Allergy Anxiety. It was run by Clinical Psychologist Dr Karen Murphy and covered:
- Coping with allergy anxiety
- Talking to your child about their food allergies
- Recovering from an allergic reaction
- Socialising and food allergy
- School and food allergy
- Hospital tests and food allergy (including skin prick tests, blood tests and oral food challenges)
How are workshops delivered?
Workshops are delivered online so no matter where you are, you can join. Traditionally we hold these in the evening but we’re looking to trial different times of day.
Past workshops have been made up of 90-minute sessions, chaired by The Allergy Team. The first half an hour was a presentation on a specific topic, followed by a Q&A and discussion.
You’ll be sent a recording of the presentation section of the workshop afterwards so you can watch it back. The Q&A and discussion sections are not recorded.
WHEN ARE YOUR NEXT WORKSHOPS?
We’re working on it!
Dr Murphy will be running another series of anxiety workshops later in the year and we’re planning some exciting new content which we’ll announce here and on social media (make sure you follow us on Instagram @theallergyteam).
