Simple Coping Mechanisms to Reduce Cancer-Related Stress in Patients: A Training for Healthcare Providers
February 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST
Sharsheret’s free 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.
Free CE credit may be available through ASWB, NYSW, ANCC, and ACCME.
