Coping with Cancer: Skills to Balance Uncertainty with Hope

Skills to Balance Uncertainty with Hope

How do we manage life with cancer and cope even in tough moments? Join Dr. Virginia O’Hayer, who will utilize skills from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

Both methods have been proven to be effective in dealing with life’s challenges. Dr. O'Hayer will discuss ways to change how we respond to unpredictable and uncontrollable situations, even when we can't change them.

You can regain a sense of control and emotional balance by learning how to live the life you want to be living NOW, balance strong emotions, and accept what can't be changed.

This webinar will help teach you skills to deal with difficult emotions.

Facilitated by C. Virginia F. O’Hayer, Ph.D.
