When a child is diagnosed with cancer, it impacts the whole family.  How can healthcare providers help the family of a child who is newly diagnosed with cancer? One option is the Surviving Cancer Competently Intervention Program –Newly Diagnosed (SCCIP-ND). 


What is SCCIP-ND?

SCCIP-ND is a manualized three session trauma informed intervention for parents and caregivers of children diagnosed with cancer. It is designed to help children and parents cope with a cancer diagnosis. The aims of SCCIP-ND are to promote healthy family adjustment to pediatric cancer and treatment and to prevent cancer-related posttraumatic stress symptoms in family members. 


Training Opportunity

Interested in becoming a trained SCCIP-ND interventionist? This program is designed for medical and mental health providers who work with caregivers of children diagnosed with cancer. 

The Center for Pediatric Traumatic Stress is holding a two-day training for SCCIP-ND on October 29th and 30th, 2015 in Wilmington, Delaware at Nemours / Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children.
