Overview

Teach effective problem-solving programs for nonprofessional cancer patient caregivers who have a limited knowledge of the disease!

Family caregivers are often uninformed about what they should do with family members with cancer; they are unskilled in carrying out caregiver duties and are emotionally involved as well. The Application to Problem-Solving Therapy to Psychosocial Oncology Care will help novices and expert professionals in the areas of nursing, social work, psychology, ministry, and cancer support programs learn how to introduce problem-solving concepts that can benefit cancer patients and families in counseling sessions, formal education programs, or in everyday clinical practice. This book covers examples and strategies that you can teach to adult and child cancer patients and their adult family caregivers to help improve the quality of lives for everyone involved.

From The Application to Problem-Solving Therapy to Psychosocial Oncology, you will discover innovative programs that you can implement with little knowledge of the disease itself to assist individuals in all aspects of the care process. Some of the researched suggestions and methods that will assist you in the care process include:

  • teaching family caregivers problem-solving therapy to manage stress and fatigue in groups and via voice mail for caregivers with limited time to spend in classes
  • understanding how cancer patients and families can use problem-solving principals to relieve cancer pain with the COPE model
  • learning maternal problem-solving therapy in pediatric care
  • using online information and support resources such as COPELINE and the CHESS program
In The Application to Problem-Solving Therapy to Psychosocial Oncology, you will also discover information on a multitude of online and hands-on support programs that you can implement to assist family caregivers of cancer patients. Each program focuses on problem-solving skills to help overcome the obstacles of caregiving, giving you relevant and effective strategies for alleviating stress and creating more positive outlooks for cancer patients and their caregivers.
