The Dempsey Center makes life better for people managing the impact of cancer with locations in Lewiston, South Portland, and now our third virtual location, Dempsey Connects. Services are provided at no cost.
What about my kids? What do I tell them? How will this impact them? and Will my children be alright? This workshop is designed to help parents, guardians, caregivers, and community members identify ways to help children and teens cope after a family member's cancer diagnosis.
Participants will learn how to talk to children about cancer, how to keep the conversation going through treatment and beyond and tangible coping skills and ideas that children and families can use to co-regulate or seek out additional support during difficult times.
