Living with or through cancer can change people. The mind and the body are
not separate from each other, they are two parts of a whole and when there is
trauma in the body it affects the mind, and when there is trauma in the mind it
affects the body. The shock of the diagnosis, the challenge of the treatment, and
the physical discomfort may end. However, changes in mood, behaviors, and
somatic symptoms may persist. People may be hesitant to talk about emotional
or psychological suffering. How can we alleviate this suffering? We can start
by talking about it and learning what treatment options are available. There are
many ways to alleviate the psychological trauma of cancer. Come learn more
about this topic and treatment options with Licensed Clinical Social Worker
and Health Coach, Kelly O’Donnell.
