Back at Work : Moving Beyond Cancer and Letting Go

Many people who are back at work may feel detached or separate from the cancer world, yet cancer is still very much a part of their life. You might be having trouble letting go of cancer, or feel like you are still processing that journey. This session will help you move beyond your cancer if you are feeling stuck. It will help you identify how your cancer journey may be impacting our work like and will offer helpful strategies to reduce your focus on cancer.

Next session date: January 28, 6 – 7:30 p.m.  Please register through your local Wellspring Centre

Facilitator: Ilene Shiller, MSW, RSW, Manager, Financial and Workplace Programs at Wellspring

Back at Work : Managing Stress at Work

It is well known that stress can influence our health and ability to cope. For many cancer patients, their diagnosis and treatment was likely a period of time that included great stress. Returning to work and being back at work can be an equally stressful time. Ongoing stress at work can reduce our ability to perform well and to deal effectively with workplace demands and conflicts. This session will provide helpful strategies for managing stress at work.
