Sexual Wellness Before and After Gynecological and Breast Cancer, hosted by Cancer Wellness Connections. 5 sessions, next session starts September, 2023.
Past participants have said:
“I appreciated going over anatomy, how cancer treatment affects the body, and different treatments. I can’t think of anything we covered that wasn’t helpful in some way!”
“I found the insight into strategies to alleviate pain during sex was most helpful but all discussions were relevant.”
“For me, learning that there is help with hoping to be able to have sex again.”
“I think participation in this group should be required for any patient/person diagnosed/or survivor of gynecological cancer.”
“Yes. The group was candid, wise, and supportive. Everything we discussed was very helpful. Connecting with women who have similar experiences helps us to know that we are not the only one facing these problems.”
The DBT Skills Group will meet Wednesday evenings. Sessions are $40 per session, meeting weekly.
The Queer and Trans Process Group will meet Monday evenings. Sessions are $40 per session, meeting weekly.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What is an Interpersonal Process Group?
Group therapy for personal development enhances the quality of our relationships and our personal resilience. Whether a complement to your ongoing therapy or as a stand alone treatment, interpersonal process groups bring a vibrancy and deep emotionality to your personal growth. Mr. Rosen has several groups running and he is always looking to expand his group practice. Sessions are weekly and group is ongoing.
