Managing Family and Friends Over the Holidays
- Monday, November 9, 6:30-8pm
Do you always feel like you're the bearer of bad news? Like you have to manage others' emotions and expectations while putting yours on the back burner?
The holidays are supposed to be a time filled with joy, but for Young Adult Cancer Survivors the holidays can bring a whole new level of anxiety. Whether you are recently diagnosed, currently under going treatment or even years post-treatment, the holidays can trigger all sorts of overwhelm and sadness. Join life coach and author Jenn McRobbie in exploring how to navigate social gatherings in the aftermath of cancer. Learn techniques to help manage others emotions and expectations while maintaining your privacy and sense of autonomy. This workshop will be an opportunity to explore your relationships and develop tools to enhance your ability to communicate and manage relationships.
Our programs are open to the community, and tailored to meet the needs of people affected by cancer. Classes and workshops are free or low cost on a pay-as-you-can basis, ensuring that our programs are accessible to everyone.
