Item Description...
Counselling People with Cancer Mary Burton and Maggie Watson Counselling People with Cancer is a practical 'how to' book written by two eminent psychologists with many years of hands-on experience in helping patients and their families face, and overcome, the many psychological problems associated with cancer. The book is intended primarily for health care professionals in regular contact with cancer patients and whose work involves a counselling element. It will also be of interest to carers in a broader sense who ask themselves, 'How can I help with the emotional side of dealing with cancer?' The book explains in clear and practical terms what to look and listen for and how to respond to the psychological needs of cancer patients and their families at different stages of the disease from the 'bad news' interview to coping with the disease and its treatment, facing common communication problems, and dealing with family issues and sexual problems. A comprehensive survey of counselling is presented with discussion of the three mainstream models of counselling - psychodynamic, humanistic and cognitive-behavioural. The final chapter deals with professional issues and offers practical suggestions for setting up a counselling service. Psychologists, psychotherapists, oncologists and nurses will find this book an indispensable guide for helping patients and their families to cope with the difficult experience of cancer.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good resource &reliable guide to anyone in grief counseling  Oct 8, 2000
'Counselling patients with cancer' is a book I personally found it to be 'fruitful', and a 'reliable supplement' to my practice. It is a 'no-beat-around-the-bush' format in writing, providing direct guidelines and advice to the reader. Written by a clinical psychologist and a psychotherapist in practice, this book focuses on the 'technical skills' on how to provide counselling to patients with cancer. Especially featuring topics, which really interest me very much: such as styles of coping, group therapy, communication barriers, intrapsychic ego defence mechanisms of denial, projection, rationalisation etc., additionally using the tenets of psychodynamic, client-centred and the cognitive behavioural model in dealing with issues to cancer. Moreover, the chapters included on guidelines on counselling in diagnosis and during the prognosis of the cancer. Case study examples are also included to enhance understanding from certain descriptions provided by the authors, as well as advice and guidelines are provided in point format. The information and materials provided in this book are easy to understand and are 'mentally digestible'. It is cross-culturally applicable.

Besides featuring on psychological perspectives in understanding, identifying, accepting, dealing with cancer, this book is also well featured towards social perspectives in dealing family and couple issues.

However, as I had personally read throughout the book, there is a limitation, which I had noticed ......the book features substantial information in children and adolescents in diagnosis with cancer (but I wish that more information would be provided) This minor limitation could perhaps meant that the book primarily and majority focus on patients that are adults. This remark that I made may actually smear the image of the book. But I realised that adults, children and adolescents shares 'similarities' in ego defence mechanisms, regardless of age, race and religion, and I think that as a reader in the field of counselling, that guidelines and features (treatments and advice) in this book are applicable and are well substantially satisfied.

A basic counselling book additionally to completment with this health counselling book in cancer, provides a excellent resource !
