Here at The Behavioural Sciences Unit we recognise that parents need support after their child’s treatment has finished. The saying “you need to put your own oxygen mask on before you can help others around you” is a useful way to think about this period of time. Some parents may benefit from a supportive, safe space and permission to process the experience to help them create a ‘new normal’.
Often, the best support comes from those who have been on a similar journey. We believe in the power of connecting parents during this time, as other parents can relate to the challenges of having a child go through cancer treatment.
With these ideas in mind, we developed the ‘Cascade’ program – a group-based online four-week support program for parents whose child has recently finished cancer treatment. If you are interested, you can find out more about the program here.
