Lecture: The Trauma of Cancer: Recovering from the Distress of a Diagnosis, Michael Vogel, LMFT, PhDc

When we are traumatized by a diagnosis such as cancer, we often feel lost and alone. We feel a rush of adrenaline, our heart started pounding, and we are flooded with emotions. Suddenly we are without a tribe lurking amongst the dark thicket of the unknown. With every step taken in the direction of a cure, we can be continually re-haunted by the prospect of re-occurance.

How does one cope with the trauma of a cancer diagnosis? How does the community help in the process of healing? How can we locate the missing aspects of the communal relationship that cancer brings into our lives? How can we better understand the mythological specter that haunts us—called cancer?

Join us at First Presbyterian Church in Santa Barbara, at 21 E. Constance, SB, Ca. 93105

It is also very often the path that leads to greater wholeness and transformation.  We seek healing for the body, yet illness serves as a catalyst for change; offering an invitation to spiritual journey.  Presented by Carolyn Robert, Ph.D., MFT, and certified spiritual director.  

Carolyn has helped develop programs on spirituality and wellness for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the MS Achievement Center at the UCLA Dept. of Neurology, and the American Jewish Academy and she speaks nationally on the subject.  For further info, you can call Janus at 805-845-9649 or Dr. Roberts at 310-490-3817.
