Conference “Being a mother with cancer when parenting is challenged by cancer” | 4 June | 18:30 | ONLINE

 4 Jun 2020 - 18:30

The exercise of parenting during the experience of breast cancer can be a challenge for mothers, raising new concerns and fears that often interfere negatively with the patient's well-being and with the homeostasis of the family system. Thus, psychological intervention with mothers with breast cancer should address issues related to parenting in order to improve communication between mothers and children, decrease parental stress and decrease maternal concerns.
