Dr. Lichtenthal is an innovative and prolific investigator in psychooncolgy. As Director of the Bereavement Clinic in the Counseling Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering (MSKCC), she specializes in end-of-life and bereavement research and clinical work, with a focus on meaning-making and intervention development. In her research and clinical trial work, she has developed interventions for people with cancer and their families to better cope with their grief and fears. How do people with advanced cancer and their families find purpose and meaning while contending with advanced disease and loss? Why do some people develop persistent and debilitating symptoms of grief – and what can be done about this? Join us for a discussion about how to best support these patients and their families.
