Spanish health care professionals teach families how to deal with loved ones battling cancer

.- The Viktor E. Frankl Association in Valencia (Spain) has gathered together a group of psychologists, doctors and nurses for a seminar this Wednesday for families who are dealing with the disease of cancer in a loved one.

The seminar, designed for family members and friends of cancer patients, aims “to help them understand the experience of the illness in its different stages and how to act during each one,” organizers told the AVAN news agency.

Speakers will explain how to help loved ones during the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, whether through chemotherapy, radiation or surgery, as well as how to deal with “the fear of relapse” and how to act “when the disease becomes chronic.”

Since its creation in 2001, the Viktor E. Frankl Association has reached out to more than 300 people, providing free psychological, legal, ethical and spiritual assistance to those battling cancer in their families or dealing with the death of a loved one from cancer.

The association is named after the Austrian psychiatrist who was born in 1905 and died 1997 and who dedicated his professional life to developing the “Existential Analysis” method for finding meaning in suffering.
