Living with cancer can be an overwhelming experience for patients and their families. Although more than half of Canadians diagnosed today will go on to live for several years with the disease, the survivorship phase is accompanied by several challenges such as fear of cancer recurrence, fatigue, and relationship changes. Our laboratory is dedicated to better understanding these challenges and to developing evidence-based interventions to address them.
Congratulations to Caroline Séguin Leclair, Ph.D. candidate in our lab who will be starting her internship in September at the Center for Psychological Services and Research and former trainees Julia Parrott who will be starting a Master’s degree in Counselling and Spirituality at St-Paul’s University and Danielle Figueiredo who will be starting a Master’s in Counselling at University of Ottawa. We welcome our new Honours students Simone Zofia Laflamme and Geneviève Trudel.
