Finding Meaning Through Talk and Movement



A cancer diagnosis can challenge us emotionally, spiritually, and physically. It can be hard to find meaning in our lives when we are stressed and facing the reality of cancer. Join this workshop to learn more about Meaning-Centered Psychotherapy.  It can help us deal with the feeling our lives have lost meaning because of our illness. We will learn ways to change how we think about the cancer experience. During this workshop, an MSK Integrative Medicine doctor will discuss Meaning-Centered Psychotherapy. An MSK dance and movement therapist will offer movement-based methods to support, explore, and connect these ideas.


This class is open to people who have been treated for cancer and their caregivers.
