Week 1 – Self-Discovery / Healing / Empowerment
Self-Exploration, Support, Education, and Discussion
A special 8-week education and discussion series for newly diagnosed and in-treatment survivors
Maintaining quality of life and sense of control are proven factors to improve one’s emotional health during cancer treatments. But how do you manage this when you are feeling so stressed and uncertain? This workshop is for people recently diagnosed or undergoing cancer treatment who want to explore and process the emotional impact of their cancer experience.
We will offer practical information and demonstrate helpful coping methods and self-care practices that will educate and empower you to a strong recovery! Bring your questions and concerns, or just come with an open mind ready to listen and learn from experts and each other. Reflection activities and discussion will cover a different topic each week. To receive maximum benefit from this holistic approach to cancer care and to keep cohesion with the small group, we ask that you commit to attending all or most of the 8 sessions.
