"Mutual Recognition in Illness: Finding a Relational Pulse"

This presentation will illustrate a common journey toward healing, with two speakers exploring their search for a relational pulse in interpersonal encounters. The role of dreams, memories of trauma, dissociation, implicit and explicit communication during medical procedures, and complementary care will be discussed. 

At conclusion, participants will be more familiar with medical/oncology dyads, living with medical conditions, therapeutic ways to work with the shame of illness, and the transformative power of spontaneity.
