Faculty-Published Companion Tip Sheet Now Available

Kristina S. Brown, PhD, LMFT, authored a tip sheet for Certified Family Life Educators on the National Healthy Marriage Resource Center website, titled Helping Couples Cope with Cancer: Tips for MRE Practitioners.

This tip sheet is a companion piece that accompanies her previously published tip sheet, titled In Sickness and In Health: Couples Fighting Cancer Together, which was published in December 2010.

Both tip sheets provides insight and tips for couples faced with the presence of cancer in their relationship. This most recent tip sheet is written for the practitioners who will treat such couples, and the previous tip sheet, which can be downloaded here, was written as a resources for the couples themselves.

Dr. Brown contends that "cancer can be an experience of resiliency, bringing you and your partner closer together.”
