Summary
  • Presents a detailed treatment manual for conducting problem-solving therapy (PST) for adult cancer patients. The authors describe the profound and extensive psychosocial difficulties that cancer patients often experience. They present the theory underlying this particular form of psychosocial treatment, the research base supporting its general efficacy, and the rationale for its particular applicability for the experience of cancer patients. An overview of PST for cancer patients is provided, including the process of the therapy; the related clinical issues; and the goals of the first, introductory session. A detailed treatment guide to conduct PST for cancer patients is given, including a series of patient handouts, "homework assignments," and sample exercises. To illustrate various therapeutic strategies and training modules, the authors describe two cases that are followed throughout the training. Problem-solving principles that have been adapted to caregiver education are provided
  • This book will be a helpful adjunct to ongoing treatment groups or in individual therapy for psychologists, psychiatrists, nurse specialists, counselors, and social workers. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)
