Attending to psychosocial needs is an essential focus in cancer care. Effective working relationships between the cancer survivor, their family, their social network, and medical care systems empower survivors to more fully participate in recovery, improving quality of life and treatment follow-through. Social service professionals are often in key roles to facilitate these positive outcomes or called in to intercede when a survivor’s support needs are unmet.

This workshop addresses each stage of the cancer journey from diagnosis and building the care team, through treatment, to aftercare and beyond. Learn strategies to help survivors build their care team and respond to social, emotional and spiritual challenges cancer may elicit. The course material leverages empirical research including multicultural issues, the instructor’s clinical expertise, and his own experience as a cancer survivor.

Class size is limited to 30.
