Finding Meaning Through Talk and Movement



A cancer diagnosis can often challenge us emotionally, spiritually, and physically in ways that we’ve never experienced before. In a time of distressing thoughts and hard realities, it can be difficult to find meaning in our lives. Meaning-Centered Psychotherapy can help us navigate loss of meaning around illness and explore how to change our perception of the cancer experience.

In this workshop for people in cancer treatment and survivorship, an MSK Integrative Medicine doctor will discuss key ideas of Meaning-Centered Psychotherapy and an MSK dance/movement therapist will offer movement-based experiences to support, explore, and connect these ideas.


This class is open to people who have been diagnosed or treated for cancer.
