    Following treatment or during treatment many young adults are eager to go back to a “regular” life. For some this can include exploring their sexuality, creating an identity separate from cancer, and engaging in activities they missed out on during treatment. In our young adult group, many youth discuss engaging in unsafe sex practices solely because they are trying to “gain back time” and want to be seen as “normal”. I am curious how other providers approach these questions with their young adults. In my own practice I try and utilize MI to discuss their goals/values and pros/cons of their current practices.
