Every month, the War On Cancer app will offer all members of the War On Cancer community free live sessions with licensed psychologist, Hana Jamali. Hana will help us learn techniques and ways to cope with life during and after cancer.
Our next session is coming up on Monday, September 27th at 14.00 (2:00 pm CET / 1:00pm UK) where we’ll cover the topic of how to feel more like a person and less like a patient when going through cancer. It’s common that when going through cancer, your surroundings start to identify you as “the one with cancer.” But we’re still ordinary people, going through something extraordinary. It’s normal to feel less like yourself when you lose control of your body or the way you look, for example, and the effect that can have on your mental health. In this session, we’ll cover how to approach feeling like yourself – within you and in the community that surrounds you – and tips on how to feel less like a patient and more like a person.
Hana has extensive experience working clinically with patients and couples and is specialized in conflict management, change management, and working with people affected by cancer. She is also a radio psychologist in Sweden.
The session will be 45 minutes and set up in webinar format so all participants will join without a camera or sound and anonymously/privately, for your own comfort. Ask questions to Hana via the chat during the session or send in your questions before the session to firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope you can join and can help you in coping with cancer as a part of life. Missed the last session about the role of loved ones during cancer? Watch it here.
