Cancer can be a stressful situation for everyone involved, but it is important to be proactive and develop positive ways of coping with stress before it becomes overwhelming. VCU Massey Cancer Center invites all cancer patients, survivors and caregivers to join clinical psychologist Tamara A. Orr, Ph.D., R.N., L.C.P., at our Stony Point location for a discussion on coping with stress. Participants will learn the warning signs of stress, the effects of stress overload and strategies for coping with stress. Several basic at-home relaxation techniques will be demonstrated. After the presentation, there will be time for questions and discussion with the instructor and fellow participants.
The event is free, but advanced registration is required.
