Announcing YAC Chat - Live Web Forum: COPING WITH THE HOLIDAY SEASON
The holiday season can be difficult for people who have experienced a major change or loss in their life. Although a traditional period of social celebration, feelings of loneliness, isolation and sadness may also be common at this time. Young people affected by cancer in particular experience challenges navigating this time of year.
This forum will provide an opportunity for the YAC community to share experiences and discuss options with each other and our guest speakers:
Date: Monday 13 December
Time: 6:00pm – 7:30pm EST
- Ms Danielle Tindle – Cancer survivor & Senior Project Officer in Adolescent & Young Adult Services with Queensland Health (QLD)
- Ms Maxine Rosenfield: Counsellor & Psychotherapist in private practice (NSW)
Setting realistic expectations
Expressing your needs
Being gentle with yourself
Creating new rituals

We're sorry to need to announce that this event has been cancelled due to low numbers - it's obviously a very busy time of year!
Do pop by the home page at www.cancerconnections.com.au for some tips and strategies for surviving the coming weeks - and don't forget, this site will be available throughout the holiday period if you're needing a bit of extra support.
We will be planning some "YAC Chat" events early in 2011, so if you'd like to be part of these, watch this space! Feel free also to let us know what topics you would like to be addressed.
Wishing you all the best for the remainder of 2010!
