Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers -Boulder clinic’s Jill Mitchell, PhD, LCSW, OSW-C recently had a study she co-authored published in Psycho-Oncology. The study entitled, “An Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) group intervention for cancer survivors experiencing anxiety at re-entry” presents the results of a seven-week group intervention intended to address the psychological needs of post-treatment survivors.
Jill co-authored the study with Dr. Joanna Arch from the University of Colorado-Boulder’s, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience. Dr. Arch and Dr. Mitchell are now beginning trainings to expand the program to other sites in the Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers (RMCC) network and to do an RCT of the intervention.
With the financial support of a 4-year American Cancer Society (ACS) grant, RMCC will receive over $100,000 for collaboration on this project. Dr. Rob Fisher, Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers-Longmont and Dr. David Andorsky, Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers-Boulder also participated in this project.
