The Relationship Dynamics of Cancer

Nov 13, 2021 12:00 PM (ET)

relationship dynamics of cancer

Cancer worms its way into everything in our life, including self-talk, mental health, relationships, and intimacy with partners. In this session, we will hear several perspectives about how our relationship dynamics are strained from a cancer diagnosis, whether it’s your own or someone you know and love. We will leave this session knowing how to communicate our mental and physical health needs in a way that flourishes our relationships with ourselves and others instead of muddling them.
