The Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA) has just announced its next support community tele-chat: “Sexuality and Intimacy During and After Cancer Treatment.” The tele-chat presenter is Sage Bolte, PhD, LCSW, OSW-C.
It’s often difficult to talk about the ways that colorectal cancer can affect both a patient’s physical and psychological sexual health. On September 7, 2011, at 8 p.m. ET, CCA has invited Dr. Bolte to address the issues and fears surrounding sexuality and intimacy during and after cancer treatment.
Dr. Bolte is an oncology counselor at Life with Cancer Family Center in Fairfax, VA who specializes helping cancer patients cope with sexual function and intimacy issues. To learn more about Dr. Bolte’s approach, see the video accompanying this article. Dr. Bolte will discuss the impact of cancer and cancer treatment on sexual function, sexual identity and self-image.
CCA tele-chats are telephone and web-based. In order to listen to the live chat, readers need to create a My CRC Connections account.
