Ray of Hope: Cancer Coping skills Group (In-centre)

A cancer coping skills group for people with cancer and their loved ones.

Using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness, patients in this 8 week interactive group program will explore strategies to:

      • experience emotions like sadness, anger and fear without being overwhelmed by them.
      • hold onto hope without being in denial.
      • cope with the symptoms of cancer and cancer treatment.
      • reconnect with a sense of control and meaning in their lives.

This group is meant for people who:

      • Have a cancer diagnosis or are a close family member of someone with cancer.
      • Are experiencing psychological distress, anxiety, depression, or difficulty coping with the effects of cancer on their life (a pre-existing mental health diagnosis is not required)

Please note: If you are scheduled for treatment or surgery during the group timeframe, it may not be the best time to join the group. However, this can be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Facilitator: Dr Jill Bailey MD CCFP FCFP FMCBT
