Simple Coping Mechanisms to Reduce Cancer-Related Stress in Patients
This live webinar, featuring Melissa Rosen, MA, from Sharsheret will be recorded on July 14th. Sharsheret's Simple Coping Mechanisms to Reduce Cancer-related Stress in Patients is a one hour interactive training that explores imagery and metaphors to assist patients with the anxiety that commonly accompanies diagnoses, treatment, and survivorship. These tools, meant to be shared with patients, are intentionally familiar, and easily recalled, to be used during moments of unexpected stress, to allow the patient to reframe their thoughts surrounding a particular concern. While these tools are not meant as a replacement for ongoing therapy for those who need, they do allow for a non-threatening introduction to the topic of mental health. Also included is an introduction to Sharsheret's free psychosocial support for breast and ovarian cancer patients.
