Skills-based group led by OSP social worker Valerie Linet, LCSW-R, SEP. Open to newly-diagnosed and long-time cancer survivors as well as caregivers.
(Pre-registration required. Please call Valerie at ext. 101 or email: valerie.linet@hahv.org)

Are you overwhelmed by your cancer diagnosis and treatment? Worried about cancer recurrence? Feeling stressed as a caregiver? In a safe, supportive space, you will learn practical ways to manage anxiety and increase a sense of well-being in the body and mind. Using mindfulness and body-centered techniques, you can reduce stress and learn to better handle strong emotions. This is a monthly interactive skill-building group rather than a traditional support or therapy group. Additional monthly practice sessions will be open to returning participants. Through practice, participants will develop a greater capacity to respond to the challenges of daily life and a cancer diagnosis. Classes integrate principles of Somatic Experiencing (SE), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).

Session topics include:
Riding the Waves of Diagnosis or Recurrence; Preparing for Treatment and Doctor’s Appointments; and Transforming Fear and Anxiety into Productive Energy.
