You will actively participate in:

  • Brainstorming on key topics;
  • Making a Weekly Action Plan on a goal that is important to YOU;
  • Feedback and Problem Solving in which you report how you did in meeting your goal.

You’ll do engaging activities designed to help you learn–

  • Distraction techniques to help manage pain;
  • Better breathing techniques and ways to avoid shortness of breath;
  • Relaxation techniques such as progressive muscle relaxation;
  • What level of exercise intensity is right for you;
  • Some guidelines about healthy eating;
  • How to communicate more effectively;
  • How to make future plans for health care;
  • How to evaluate new treatment options;
  • The power of positive thinking.

All workshop participants get the companion book, “Living a Healthy Life with a Chronic Condition”.

Light refreshments are provided throughout, with a graduation celebration at the end!
