Calming Stars - Art Therapy for Self-Care and Stress Management

Presenter: Mignon Dupepe LCPC, ATR
June 30, 2021
7:30 – 8:30 pm EST
Join NOCC and Twist Out Cancer for an evening of healing, relaxation, and self-care through art. Art therapy can help reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress related to a cancer diagnosis. Using star metaphors and symbols, we will explore grounding and breath practices that support self-care and stress management. No artistic background is necessary to participate — just an interest in using art for expression.  We encourage you to use what you have in your home when possible. Suggested art supplies include: white multi-use paper or watercolor paper, colorful markers or crayons (including white crayon), table salt, watercolor paints and paintbrush, oil pastels, paper towels, and a cup of water.

Presenter: Dr. Brian Gonzalez, Moffitt Cancer Center
July 14, 2021
7:30 – 8:30 pm EST
Experiencing sleep disruptions is common for both patients and caregivers following a cancer diagnosis. Yet research shows that sleep is a necessity for your body’s ability to heal. Whether physically driven as a result of treatments or emotionally driven due to stress and anxiety, learn how making sleep a priority can help improve your quality of life, and come away with strategies for obtaining a more restful night’s sleep.

Communication Between Survivors and Caregivers

Presenter: LeighAnn Caulkins, MSW, LCSW
July 21, 2021
7:30 – 8:30 pm EST
Good communication, let’s face it, is hard. After an ovarian cancer diagnosis, it can become even more challenging.  But good communication lets you express yourself. It also helps you better communicate your own struggles, emotions, limits and needs as either a survivor or caregiver. You will need to work together when speaking with the medical team, friends, and family. Learn how to navigate these challenges by discovering tips and tricks that can help improve your communication skills and reduce stress in your relationship. We encourage survivors and their caregivers to attend this session together.
