Cancer is extremely common and in many situations a truly frightening disease, but for too long the psychological aspects and effects have been ignored. Patrice Geux has reviewed current thinking on the subject of the possible psychosomatic aetiology of cancer, on the emotional or psychological reactions that it provokes and on the medical treatment available to deal with it. Illustrated with eleven case histories, An Introduction to Psycho-Oncology deals in a clear and simple manner with the reactions of cancer patients to their illness, and the ways in which they can be helped in the hospital setting, while having regard for their human dignity. In the context of a multidisciplinary approach that takes account of medical treatments as well as psychological interventions, the author offers suggestions for better ways of communicating so as to provide a therapeutic partnership between carer and client. Every aspect of cancer care, including pain relief, psycho-pharmology and complementary medicine is considered paying special attention to the needs of terminal patients and their carers.
