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).



SCCIP ND Training



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 an integrated cognitive behavioral and family systems intervention, 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.
