Abstract

Children that suffer from chronic illnesses are at risk of developing behavioral disorders stemming from a lack of self esteem,frequent removal from their peer support networks, and feeling a sense of injustice with regards to their medical condition and the health of their peers.Furthermore, the process of hemodialysis can be a socially isolating experience by way of being tied to a machine that restricts freedom of movement and social activity amongst concomitant users.
