…..and I am going dear friends! first to QUITO and then to GUAYAQUIL. I was supposed to have been there already in June but the volcano Tungurahua manifested itself in a …let say effusive way and I was scared, not feeling very well to face Mother Nature.

Now , I am ready ! from the 25th to 29th/8…and i”ll share with you what happened there, what we learned together with my  new friends of the MIDDLE OF THE EARTH…

Topics like Prevention and Education, symbolic approach of  hemophilia and its issues, educational and playful tool like Hemoaction cards, starting a psycho social group… I look forward to meet interested people and families with hemophilia.

Mañana por la noche, estaré con ustedes amigos y colegas Ecuatorianos! Estoy muy honrada de poder ser la persona que iniciará este nuevo paso en el área psico-social…cuenten comigo que haré lo posible para traerles lo mejor desde la Federación mundial de Hemofilia y desde mi experiencia como psicoterapeuta.

Un abrazo,

    En nombre de todos los pacientes que viste en Guayaquil te doy mil y un gracias por habernos explicado de forma didáctica y explicativa lo referente a hemofilia y la psicología tanto para pacientes como para padres se que los niños jóvenes adolescentes están muy agradecidos ya que se llevan a sus casas lo que ahora fue enseñado, que triste que no pudimos tenerte todo un día por motivos de itinerario pero espero que haya otra oportunidad por que fue muy bienvenida aquí en la ciudad de Guayaquil.
    Para mi fue un honor conocerla y a la vez saludarla y espero mantener contacto siempre por medio de este blog.

    Gracias una vez más Frederica
