"My ethos personally and professionally is to feel empowered as well as to empower others, always hoping for the most integrated, least toxic approach available."
Carol F. Roth, LCSW, BCD, MSS
Carol Roth, a mind-body therapist at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) at Eastern Regional Medical Center, recognizes that cancer does not just impact the body; it affects the mind and spirit as well.
A licensed clinical social worker, Roth has over 25 years of clinical experience in outpatient psychotherapy services. She has also trained and worked as a massage therapist.
Roth earned a master’s degree from the Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research at Bryn Mawr College in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. She also received additional post-professional training in family and marital therapy.
Roth has been interested in mind-body techniques and understanding since 1974, when she first learned to meditate. She admits that she had no idea how far-reaching the impact of that experience would be in her life. Since then, Roth says she has personally explored many mind-body approaches for her own growth and healing.
With a vast interest (and extensive experience) in helping herself and others using mind-body approaches, it seemed natural for Roth to join CTCA, an organization that values healing the whole person, not just the disease. Roth joined the hospital’s Mind-Body Medicine Department in June 2006.
At CTCA, Roth and the rest of the mind-body team offer patients and their family members clinical support and the opportunity to explore their emotional concerns. Roth says she counsels outpatients in the oncology clinic as well as hospitalized patients. In addition, Roth’s department offers patient education activities, including relaxation, guided imagery, laughter club and support group sessions.
Roth says the team constantly looks for ways to develop and expand their mind-body medicine services. She says one of her goals is to increase her academic understanding of mind-body approaches and to broaden the experiential activities she can offer to patients at CTCA.
Roth has had a life-long interest in art and music, and an appreciation for beautiful, natural environments.
