How do we manage life with cancer and cope even in the darkest days? Elizabeth Cohn Stuntz has co-authored the recently published Coping with Cancer: DBT Skills to Manage Emotions and Balance Uncertainty with Hope with Marsha Linehan, whose Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills have been proven effective in dealing with life’s challenges.
DBT teaches that although you can’t change unpredictable and uncontrollable situations, you can change how you respond. You can regain a sense of control and emotional balance by learning how to regulate strong emotions. This webinar will help you teach clients to understand that emotions can be constructive guides to action. Studies report that cancer patients who could understand, categorize and label their emotions, showed improved emotional coping and other health benefits such as lower levels of inflammation.
