Sharsheret can provide your practice, hospital, or organization, patient education sessions on a variety of psychosocial topics. These sessions can be in-person (location permitting) or through an online portal. These sessions are appropriate for anyone impacted by cancer. Presentations are listed below, and if you have a different topic in mind, we are happy to work with you to create something unique.
Thriving Again: The Value of An Everyday Moment
Coping with a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. Join a conversation to explore how to appreciate everyday moments, celebrate life despite exhaustion, and reduce anxiety in the face of cancer. This program is appropriate for those facing a cancer diagnosis, in treatment, living with metastatic disease, and recent and long-term survivors.
The Value of An Everyday Moment: Living Alongside Cancer
Coping with a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. Living with a metastatic diagnosis includes additional challenges. Join a conversation to explore how to appreciate everyday moments, celebrate life despite exhaustion, and reduce anxiety in the face of cancer. This program is geared toward those facing advanced or metastatic disease.
Coping with Cancer: A Fresh Approach
Join us to explore unique ideas, imagery, and metaphors as coping tools to help make your experience more manageable. Explore positive ways to reduce stress and feel empowered. Leave with concrete tools to help you feel more in control, during the moments that feel overwhelming. This program is appropriate for anyone impacted by cancer.
The Art of Disclosure
Communicating about a cancer diagnosis can be complicated. Join us to discuss the many aspects of cancer communication, including disclosing a diagnosis, sharing a change in status, talking to children about cancer, asking for the support you need, and dealing with others’ reactions when you share a diagnosis. This program is appropriate for those facing cancer, survivors, and caregivers.
Dignity and the Cancer Experience
A cancer diagnosis can bring feelings of loss of control, and treatment may alter our appearance and our abilities temporarily or permanently. Dignity is about self-determination: from how we present ourselves, to being able to complete certain tasks without assistance, to making decisions on our own. Learn about how meeting your non-medical needs and maintaining dignity is an integral part of healing and a pillar of the cancer experience.
Healing from the Cancer Experience
If cancer is more than a physical experience, then it stands to reason that healing must be more than a physical experience. This program is part presentation, part activity. The idea that healing is not linear is addressed in this presentation, as we discuss a wide variety of tools we can use as part of psychosocial healing from a cancer experience. This program uses art, meditation, writing, and more to explore moving beyond the distress of a cancer experience.
Health, Happiness, and the Holidays
Coping with a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming and cancer tries to take so much from us. We must do all we can to preserve the activities, the special days, and the celebrations that bring us happiness. Explore ways to appreciate everyday moments and special occasions, and celebrate the holidays joyfully, despite exhaustion and anxiety in the face of cancer.
