The Canadian Breast Cancer Network (CBCN) has developed a workshop titled “Intimacy After Breast Cancer: A Program for Young Women”. This workshop was created to address sexuality and intimacy issues after breast cancer as they were identified by young women at the 2007 Young Women’s Conference in Toronto. The workshop was developed by clinical psychologist and breast cancer survivor Dr. Sally Kydd and was tested with the collaboration of 15 young women survivors in 2009.
Thanks to the support of La Vie en Rose and the Roses of Hope Foundation, CBCN is making this resource available free of charge to breast cancer support organizations throughout Canada. CBCN will provide organizations with a facilitators’ manual, a PowerPoint presentation that coincides with the manual and a copy of Dr. Sally Kydd’s book “Intimacy After Cancer” for each participant. The manual and PowerPoint presentation are available in both English and French. Due to the sensitive nature of the material, workshops must be facilitated by qualified professionals.
Topics addressed in this unique new resource include:
