Deceits of the Mind and Their Effects on the Body
(Transaction Publishers; Piscataway, New Jersey, 1991)
Cancer is a leading cause of death in the United States. In recent years, there has been great interest in the idea that cancer patients can benefit from psychotherapeutic treatment.
This book deals comprehensively with major issues in the psychotherapeutic treatment of cancer patients. It remains the standard volume in the field, drawing together a broad spectrum of work using psychological approaches to treatment of cancer patients and to understanding the disease’s sociological and psychological implications.
The contributors examine key issues, including the relationship between psychosis, neurosis and cancer: sexual functioning of cancer patients; cancer as an emotionally regressive experience; and cancer in children.Buy Now on Amazon
