Summary Advances in early intervention and cancer treatment have led to an increasing number of cancer survivors who face long-term psychological challenges in dealing with their disease. Psycho- oncology was written to assist oncologists, physicians, psychiatrists and other mental health clinicians, and hospital chaplains in understanding and offering supportive treatment to the more than 40% of individuals who will receive a cancer diagnosis during their lifetime. Living with the threat of recurrence, undergoing lifesaving, but traumatic and possibly disfiguring treatment, explaining the disease to others-these are some of the psychological and psychosocial issues addressed by this groundbreaking book. In clear, accessible language, Psycho-oncology takes the reader through the predictable emotions and psychological challenges that may be encountered by patients and their families, with neoplastic disorders over the course of their treatment-from diagnosis to end-of-life decisions. Comprehensive cancer care requires consideration of all psychosocial domains in evaluation and treatment, and Psycho-oncology directly addresses this lack of comprehensive understanding by providing ways to identify, and effectively treat, patients in distress. The book is an indispensable resource to all who provide health care or minister to the needs of oncology.
