When Mr. D requested therapy for himself and his two children, his wife had recently died from breast cancer.
His 14-year old son is small for his age and spoke of being bullied recently by his classmates, his grades were suffering and he was isolating himself.
The Jean Steirn Cancer Program linked them with a clinical social worker. After one month, Mr. D reported,
“I had no idea how helpful this could be. We actually look forward to it.” Of their therapist, “Ya’ll could not have picked a better person. I felt as though the compassion was already there the minute we walked in the room.”
After three months of therapy, Mr. D reported that the bullying stopped and, “We have started projects to help us cope. Like last weekend we started a flower garden and I couldn’t believe how therapeutic it was. . .We are moving through the grief process together.”
