Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for People with Cancer Summary


Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for People with Cancer by Stirling Moorey

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) has established itself as the psychological treatment of choice for many conditions. It offers a brief, convincing, common sense approach to the emotional problems faced by people with cancer, and there is considerable evidence for its effectiveness. Since the first edition of this book in 1989 (published as Psychological Therapy for Patients with Cancer) there have been many developments in cognitive therapy and psycho-oncology which have been incorporated in the new edition. The current evidence for the effect of psychological state on survival and the efficacy of CBT in cancer is reviewed. Using a cognitive behavioural model to understand reactions to cancer, the authors present cognitive, behavioural, emotional and interpersonal interventions to help people adjust to the threat to their life and their view of themselves. Case examples illustrate how these techniques are used to reduce anxiety and depression, induce a fighting spirit, teach effective coping skills and develop open communication between patients and their partners. Mental health professionals working in oncology and health care professionals interested in psychological management will find this a useful source for psychological techniques that can be applied in a busy clinical setting. ALSO PUBLISHED BY OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS Science and Practice of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Edited by David Clark & Christopher Fairburn Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Psychiatric Problems Edited by Keith Hawton, Paul Salkovskis, Joan Kirk & David Clark

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for People with Cancer Reviews


The book is very well written and may be appropriate not only for psychotherapists, but also for physicians who want to improve their psychosomatic skills. Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics I would ... highly recommend this book to those working in palliative care. It was easy to read, of manageable length, and provided many useful examples of cognitive and behavioural techniques that those working in palliative care would be able to adopt immediately into clinical practice. Palliative Medicine, 17
