Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center Meaning-Centered Psychotherapy Workshops

Meaning-Centered Psychotherapy Support Group

Experiencing cancer directly can be deeply affecting, potentially shaking
one’s sense of self and life in general, leading to distress. Meaning-Centered Psychotherapy has been designed by leading  psychotherapists and researchers at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center to help people with cancer “understand the importance and relevance of sustaining, reconnecting with, and creating meaning in their lives through common and reliable sources of meaning.” Participants in this program at Memorial Sloan-Kettering reported improved spiritual well-being and sense of meaning, and a decreased sense of anxiety and hopelessness. This group welcomes anyone diagnosed with cancer who has advanced cancer and is no longer in treatment, currently in treatment, or who has completed treatment within the past year. This will be an eight-week committed group, with the expectation that participants will choose either group option and commit to attending that group. There are two options available:
