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.
This advanced, specialized training opportunity will emphasize skill development and refinement in CALM therapeutic techniques and processes, through clinical case presentations, didactic and experiential learning activities and group discussion. Please note that registration priority will be given to clinicians working with a cancer population.
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.

Clinical case presentations and discussion from an international cohort of CALM therapists
CALM Clinical Supervision
