Professor Sophie Lebel is a professor at the University of Ottawa and clinical psychologist with a focus on cancer survivorship and psychosocial interventions. She has contributed to the definition and measurement of fear of cancer recurrence and clinical recurrence, validated a model of fear of cancer recurrence, and co-developed a cognitive existential group intervention for survivors that has been tested through clinical trials, including with women with ovarian cancer.
She is the director of the Interdisciplinary Psychosocial Oncology Research Group and Laboratory, an initiative that brings together researchers, health care providers, community partners, and trainees with an interest in helping cancer patients and their loved ones in the Greater Ottawa region. Clinically, Dr. Lebel helps cancer patients and their caregivers with adjustment difficulties throughout the disease trajectory.
