The Learning to Live with Lymphedema. Developing Hope & Coping Skills presentation is designed as a series of 4 workshops:
- Getting to Know Each Other and Sharing Experiences
- Coping Strategies: Dealing with the Negative Voice Inside
- Creating a Hopeful Environment
- Preparing for More Bumps & Creative Projects
The presentation includes notes for facilitators as well as additional resources to conduct the workshops.
The recommended number of participants is 6-12 people, with 2 hours allowed for each workshop. An ideal location would be free from distractions and noise, with a "round table" set up for discussion and to provide a writing surface. Supplies and preparations for each workshop are described in the presentation which may be adapted to suit a variety of needs.
