Siblings group project

Kelsey Harper, a doctoral student at the California School of Professional Psychology, is designing a support group to empower, strengthen, and support siblings of children and teens with cancer.  Enhancing resilience in siblings of children with cancer will provide them with the strength and tools necessary to effectively cope with the variable, ambiguous, and unpredictable process.

 This project needs adults 18 years or older, who are a member of a family currently experiencing recent diagnosis, treatment, or recent remission within the last two years.  You can offer your ideas with this important group of children, and your family offers your help in building a play group special for children like yours, helping give much needed rest, fun, and growth to siblings of children with cancer.

 If you can participate, please follow this link to the online Powerpoint presentation outlining the project and the curriculum (http://www.slideshare.net/harperk2/enhancing-resilience-in-siblings-of-children-with-cancer?from=share_email).  After viewing the presentation, please follow this link to an online survey to answer questions about you and your family, your feedback on the curriculum, and additional comments about the needs of families like yours (http://alliant.qualtrics.com/SE?SID=SV_8vQgHCC5h6Ut2K0).    Please have only one person per family complete the survey on behalf of the family.  Thank you for your help with this important project.
