Facing Cancer and Maintaining Emotional Wellness

May 1, 2013

05/01/13 - Wednesday's Topical Currents examines what everyone fears:  a cancer diagnosis. Whether it’s one’s self, a loved one or dear friend, life’s outlook is immediately changed and prioritized. We’ll visit with two authors who write about cancer diagnosis, the fear of death, and our emotional wellness when faced with such a trauma. Our guests are Norman Straker, MD, editor of “Facing Cancer and the Fear of Death: A Psychoanalytic Perspective on Treatment” and Niki Barr, PhD, author of  “Emotional Wellness: The Other Half of Treating Cancer.”  That’s Topical Currents Wednesday at 1pm on WLRN-HD1 rebroadcast at 7pm on WLRN-HD2 and audio on-demand after the live program.
