From the Publisher"As a handbook, this text suceeds most thoroughly as a low-altitude survey of what lies under the sun of the psycho-therapeutic aspect of 'psycho-oncology'. Well-trod topics such as cognitive-behavioural therapies and motivational interviewing are represented here with fresh coverage that will be beneficial to all but specialized practioners of these modalities." (Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, 2012)
"The handbook is quite practical, though theory well supports the therapies. It is likely to help in teaching about psychotherapies as well as to practice it. It is a comprehensive resource book for researchers on such therapies. For professionals involved in palliative care,this book has all they would need, and more." (Indian Journal of Palliative Care, December 2012)
“It definitely is a book which must be kept in every cancer center and palliative care units, and would be read by physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers and psychiatrists, and palliative care professionals.” (Indian Journal of Palliative Care, 1 September 2012)
"The book is well organized and easy to read due to the use of a consistent format for topics in each chapter and the presented evidence ... This book is a much needed resource on psychotherapeutic techniques useful for the psychological care of cancer patients." (Doody's, 24 February 2012)
"Designed to address the specific needs of cancer patients, their families, and their caregivers, the Handbook of Psychotherapy in Cancer Care provides an introduction to psychological therapies within the young discipline of psycho-oncology. As cancer survivor and co-founder of the European Cancer Patient Coalition, Lynn Faulds Wood states in her foreword, ‘. . . psycho-oncology is still largely an underrecognised yet vital part of the cancer journey for patients’ (p. xiv). This volume begins to fill this void.
This handbook is a valuable resource for individuals at the training stage of their careers to gain exposure to the range of techniques that can be brought to bear on the supportive care of cancer patients. The accessible writing style suggests that cancer patients and those who support them might also find the book interesting." Read the full review here. (Psycho-Oncology, January 2012)
