Helping Cancer Patients Cope: A Problem-Solving Approach by Nezu, Arthur, Ph.D.

Problem solving is a skill often linked with qualities such as optimism, courage, and self-confidence. It is also one that can help people cope successfully, and even flourish, in the face of major life events. This practical book presents a focused, step-by-step plan for teaching these skills to cancer patients. The authors developed this plan over the course of more than 20 years of work with cancer patients, and testing has found that it helps cancer patients face the physical, financial, social, and spiritual challenges of their illness. The 10-session program works with group family, and individual settings and includes homework assignments and handouts to help patients use their new skills outside of therapy. Its goals are to diminish patients sense of helplessness and to instill a sense of control and hope.
