If you're a regular listener, you know Dr. Holly was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. 1 in 8 women will at some point in their life.
So today we are talking about coping skills and pathways to healing with Elizabeth Cohn Stuntz. She is a psychotherapist in private practice in Mamaroneck, New York, as well as a cancer survivor and Zen student.
We'll hear about the ups and downs of treatment and recovery, dealing with uncertainty and anxiety and all of the emotions a cancer diagnosis brings up, and just exactly what dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is.
And while the book addresses cancer directly, the tools outlined within the book can provide guidance in dealing with many other unexpected, challenging situations, including coping with the stress caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
