    At last - a practical and insightful book I can actually use!

    This book is chalk full of increadibly useful tools, principles, and specific examples for working with cancer patients (not just breast cancer). I have been using various aspects of it with individual patients and groups with very good results. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
