“Taming the Tiger: Releasing Your Fears About Cancer”
(For survivors; available live or by videoconference) Fear about cancer is nearly universal among survivors of a cancer diagnosis, costing countless hours of sleep and anxiety. Survivors often feel alone in this struggle, as loved ones may not understand why they’d continue to be afraid once treatment is over. In this interactive presentation, Dr. Shani reveals:
- Evidence that mastering fear is essential to living well with or beyond cancer
- The power over fear you didn’t know you had
- The simple secret to mastering fear, so you can live with the wellness and peace of mind you deserve
“Post-Traumatic Growth: An Organizing Principle for Cancer Recovery?”
(For medical/wellness professionals) For many, cancer diagnosis and treatment are experienced as trauma. While this may result in the well-known Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder for a few, the greater opportunity is to nurture the natural phenomenon of Post-Traumatic Growth, which recent research links to favorable outcomes in survivors including less distress, better coping skills and greater ability to envision new possibilities for themselves. This presentation defines Post-Traumatic Growth in the context of cancer, demonstrates its outcomes, and offers clinical recommendations for encouraging Post-Traumatic Growth in survivors of a cancer diagnosis.
