CALM is a brief, semi-structured, evidence-based, psychotherapeutic intervention 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 program aims to provide core training for therapists new to CALM, to enhance the skills of current CALM therapists, and to support the adaptation of CALM therapy to different treatment sites nationally and internationally.
This workshop will focus on:
CALM therapeutic techniques and processes, with emphasis on skill development
Clinical case presentations and discussion from an international cohort of CALM therapists
The group supervision experience
Updates on CALM research
