- become confident in writing for all purposes, including scholarly writing in professional journals
- understand how expressive writing can help your patients with emotional healing
Writing About Cancer is a four-week course (two hours each session) to help people with cancer--whether in treatment, in remission, or living with cancer--acknowledge and resolve emotional issues that typically accompany a diagnosis of cancer.
Writing for Personal Caregivers is a four-week course (two hours each session) to help people who care for an adult loved one with a debilitating condition deal with the emotional issues that arise in this demanding role.
Each program is packaged with an easy-to-follow Facilitator's Guide. Instructions are spelled out so anyone--nurse, administrator, social worker, staff development officer, etc.--can lead the sessions.
In addition to the Facilitator's Guide, which arrives as a Word email attachment, you receive handouts and/or links to handouts for each session plus a course survey for participants to complete so you get feedback about the effectiveness of the program.
