    Brief description:

    Cancer survival is a transition through a difficult period of time that can cause anxiety, distress and impaired quality of life, so that women may seek therapies that bring mind, body, emotions, and spirit into greater balance. The illness, treatment and side effects can also affect a woman’s identity, body image and ability to function. Signs of emotional distress can include feelings of helplessness, uncertainty, anxiety, depression, loss of identity and meaning, and feelings of betrayal by one’s body. Dance/movement therapy is a whole person therapeutic method uniquely suited to working with women with breast cancer to rebuild their sense of self, create new narratives and experiencing personal transformation.

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this webinar, participants should be able to:

    1) Increase understanding of the impact of breast cancer on a woman’s body.

    2) Observe examples of a breast cancer support group that used dance movement therapy as a healing modality, and understand some of the possible ways of using movement for health and healing through powerpoint and readings.

    3) Understand the important clinical, ethical and professional considerations of leading support groups for women with breast cancer.
