The Role of Social Connections, Emotional Well-Being, and Lifestyle Changes after a Cancer Diagnosis

Cindy D. Ness is a Psychologist and Cultural Anthropologist (doctorates from Harvard University and The University of Pennsylvania, respectively, and LCSW, NYU. A cancer survivor, she has devoted the majority of her private practice to working with individuals and couples dealing with cancer. When you get a cancer diagnosis the attention turns very quickly from your feelings to dealing with your medical condition. This is despite the fact that the medical research literature has a strong message for you: emotional well-being, social connection, and lifestyle changes help people better survive physical illness. This talk is first meant to share what we know about these powerful tools and their role in disrupting and pushing back cancer progression. It then turns into an interative conversation about "unpacking" emotions that weigh us down, the four essential anchors to building a strong social support network, and key ideas associated with going from surviving to thriving.
