600 patients who have completed treatment between one and three years ago and are currently cancer-free will be recruited via the New Jersey State Cancer Registry or the Cancer Registry of Greater California and randomly assigned to ES or Springboard Beyond Cancer. Participants will complete measures at baseline, 2, and 6-months post-baseline. The investigators will also complete a process evaluation of Empowered Survivor.
