May Program: Understanding Grief and Loss with Dr. Amanda Kracen, PhD
May 6, 2015
6 - 8 p.m.

Cancer survivors may experiences grief and loss in a variety of ways both during and post treatment. While some moments of grief are easily recognized, other moments might be harder to identify because losses can come in many shapes and sizes. These may include physical, emotional, social, and financial losses that can affect all different facets of your life. Any type of loss can create an emotional experience, which can be different from one person to the next. Please join Dr. Amanda Kracen, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist at the Siteman Cancer Center, in an open conversation about coping with experiences of loss and grief and what those experiences look like to you.
