Emotional Wellness: The Other Half of Treating Cancer
If you or somebody you love has ever dealt with cancer, then you know that emotional well-being is half the battle.

Medical treatments for cancer continue to advance, yet tools to help cancer patients address their emotional health still lag behind.

Now, physicians and psychologists are beginning to realize that healing is improved - sometimes greatly improved - when both the physical and emotional needs of patients are served.

In Emotional Wellness: The Other Half of Treating Cancer, cancer psychotherapist Niki Barr describes the emotional side of treatment to guide you through diagnosis, medical treatment, and beyond. Join Niki and Dr. Mike as they discuss this life-changing topic.
