Fear of recurrence, or fear of the cancer coming back, is one of the most common worries among women diagnosed with breast cancer and can have a powerful effect on your quality of your life. During our March teleconference, Kauser Ahmed, PhD, staff clinical psychologist and licensed clinical psychologist at Simms/Mann - UCLA Center for Integrative Oncology, will explore how to cope with fear of recurrence after completing treatment for breast cancer. Participants will learn strategies to:
- Help gain control over fear and anxiety
- Stay ahead of "trigger" events
- Communicate what they are feeling to loved ones and healthcare providers
Dr. Ahmed will also discuss where to find additional resources.
