Managing Cancer and Living Meaningfully (CALM): Advanced Training Workshop for Healthcare Professionals
CALM is a brief, semi-structured, evidence-based, psychotherapeutic intervention for advanced cancer patients and their primary caregivers. It is designed to help people with metastatic cancer and their caregivers manage the practical and profound problems associated with advanced disease. The primary goals of CALM are reducing and preventing psychological distress. The CALM Training Program was designed to teach and supervise healthcare professionals in the delivery of CALM therapy. The focus of the Advanced Workshop is to enhance the skills of current CALM therapists, and to support the adaptation of CALM therapy to different treatment sites nationally and internationally.
