Welcome to the From Cancer to Health (C2H) Intervention and Training Institute Website!

Psychological interventions can play a powerful role in enabling cancer patients to successfully cope with diagnosis and treatment. Mental health professionals can help patients affected by cancer reduce their emotional distress and improve patients' quality of life and health.

From Cancer to Health (C2H) is the first evidence-based biobehavioral intervention designed for people newly diagnosed with cancer that is available for specialty training.  Clinical trials have documented the efficacy of this treatment in reducing patients’ stress and anxiety, improving their social adjustment, promoting change to positive health behaviors, reducing symptoms of cancer treatment, and improving health outcomes.  It is a completely manualized treatment that can be offered in group or individual formats.  Patients can use companion guidebooks to aid in their understanding of and compliance with therapy.  You will learn a substantive and clinically rich treatment that will make the difference in improving your patients’ coping with the challenges of diagnosis, cancer treatment, and the transitions to survivorship.
