It can be hard to recover from the turmoil caused by a cancer diagnosis, but it’s a critical step to recovery and the road back to a normal life. VCU Massey Cancer Center invites all cancer patients, survivors and caregivers to join Connie Macaluso, LCSW, MSW, MS, NCC, clinical research social worker, at our Stony Point location for a discussion on resiliency, or a person’s ability to recover from adversity, setbacks and disruptions. Participants will learn the meaning of resiliency and how to build their own by identifying individual protective factors, developing a network of support and identifying positive coping skills. After a brief presentation, there will be time for questions and discussion with the instructor and fellow participants.
