Experiencing cancer directly can be deeply affecting, potentially shaking one’s sense of themselves 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 who has had a cancer diagnosis and/or their caregivers. This will be an 8-week committed group, with the expectation that participants will choose either group option and commit to attending that group.
