'Getting Well Again' Virtual New 6 week Patient Program August 28th - October 5th, 2023
October 30th - December 7th, 2023
The SCC New Patient Program is based on the successful model for emotional intervention and support which Dr. Simonton pioneered in the treatment of cancer patients.
It evolved from the concept that beliefs, emotions, attitudes, stress and lifestyles are important factors influencing health.
When illness occurs, these factors also influence one's response to medical treatment and can help to determine the effectiveness of the treatment as well as the level of confidence in your medical team.
The format is currently offered in a 6 week online virtual program consisting of 12 sessions. Sessions are twice a week, each session being approximately 2 hours long. Individual sessions are scheduled during this 6 week period, not during lecture times, and are part of the online package. This is an educational and psycho-therapeutic session for cancer patients and their support person, where using a modified cognitive-based approach, as well as other modalities, these mind/body concepts are explored in a safe and supportive environment conducive to learning and positive change.
In these program you will discover and learn tools and techniques to:
