Cancer and its treatments have significant and persistent impacts on body image and related issues, often reducing quality of life. This one day workshop will introduce a well-developed psychosocial group intervention – Restoring body Image after Breast Cancer (ReBIC) – which incorporates guided imagery exercises and psychotherapeutic techniques to help cancer patients confront and work through the issues with their body image related distress.
Relevant for: Physicians, Psychologists, Social Workers, Nurses, Researchers and other Allied Health Providers
