Fostering a Sense of Self-Embrace

A workshop focused on the psychosocial impact of cancer on body image.

Cancer treatment often brings unwanted changes to our bodies and physical appearances. These changes such as weight loss/gain, scarring, hair loss, and breast or skin changes can also have an impact on our emotional wellbeing and self-esteem. In this one-time workshop, we will focus on the psychosocial impact of cancer on body image. Participants will have the opportunity to explore this topic in a safe environment with other patients and survivors and learn about strategies to cope with these challenges and cultivate a sense of self-embrace.

Please note, this workshop is designed for women undergoing active treatment and/or within 3-6 months post treatment.

Facilitated by:

Sydney Stupp, Social Work Intern, Simms/Mann UCLA Center for Integrative Oncology
Joan Anderson, MSW, Staff Clinician, Simms/Mann UCLA Center for Integrative Oncology
Featuring Kristine Knudsen, Certified Mastectomy Fitter, Reflections Boutique
