Living with Multiple Myeloma. – Managing the “Not Knowing”- Finding our power



In this podcast, Joanna Sweeney a systemic family therapist, explores the impact and challenge of “Not Knowing” following a diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma.

Not knowing” what MM is, what it means for me, for my family, not knowing how to cope and make sense of all the changes.

Joanna discusses understanding loss following a diagnosis and finding empowerment. She outlines the importance of building resilience, finding inner strengths, meaning and purpose in the patient and family unit. She also describes how emotional regulation and family therapy strengthens family resilience to cope with adversity and perhaps even grow from it together.
