CALM or Managing Cancer and Living Meaningfully, is a brief, semi-structured, evidence-based, psychotherapeutic intervention designed to help people with metastatic cancer and their caregivers manage the practical and profound problems associated with advanced disease. The primary goals of CALM are reducing and preventing psychological distress.

The CALM Therapy Training Program is designed to teach and supervise healthcare professionals in the delivery of CALM therapy. The program has two levels. In the introductory level, learners will develop clinical skills to help patients manage the challenges of living with cancer, reduce distress and promote psychological well-being. The advanced level will focus on enhancing learners’ therapeutic skills through clinical supervision.

To date, we have tained over 200 healthcare professionals, including oncologists, primary care and palliative care physicians, psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, psychologists, occupational therapists, spiritual care providers and music therapists from over 20 countries.
