Morning Session: Partners in Coping: A Psychosocial Intervention for Couples Coping with Breast Cancer

  • Speaker: Dr. Karen Kayser
    • Professor and Renato LaRocca Endowed Chair in Oncology Social Work at the University of Louisville, Kent School of Social Work

 

  • Program Description
    • Despite the empirical evidence that cancer is often experienced as a “we-disease,” cancer care still focuses primarily on the distress of the patient with little attention to the partner or the patient’s intimate relationship. In this workshop, Dr. Kayser will present a framework for assessing how couples manage stress, namely, the Relational-Cultural Coping Model. The application of the model will be demonstrated with interventions that were developed to facilitate effective dyadic coping for couples dealing with breast cancer.

 

  • Learning Objectives
  1. Understand the concept of dyadic coping and how it can be applied to couples facing cancer-related stress.
  2. Demonstrate three strategies to facilitate couples coping with cancer through interactive role plays and/or case studies.
  3. Apply cultural humility when working with couples of diverse ethnicities.
  4. Identify at least 3 RCTs supporting couple-based interventions in cancer care.

 

Afternoon Session: Couples, Cancer, Sexuality & Intimacy: Overcoming Obstacles

  • Speaker: Dr. Carey Roth Bayer
    • Associate Professor, Departments of Community Health and Preventative Medicine/Medical Education and Director of the Center of Excellence for Sexual Health, Satcher Health Leadership Institute, Morehouse School of Medicine

 

  • Program Description
    • During this 3 hour, interactive session, participants will explore the intersections of cancer, sexuality, and intimacy for cancer-impacted couples. Participants will strategize and practice techniques for communicating with couples navigating the (re)creation of healthy intimate relationships after cancer.

 

  • Learning Objectives
  1. Identify at least 3 ways cancers can impact couples’ sexual and intimate relationships
  2. Develop at least 2 strategies for assisting cancer-impacted couples in navigating healthy intimate relationships
  3. Demonstrate at least 2 strategies for communicating about sexuality and cancer with couples
