Helping Couples Cope with Women's Cancers : An Evidence-based Approach for Practitioners Hardback
At last, here is a comprehensive guide for practitioners who work with breast cancer patients and their families.
It includes a series of psychosocial interventions to be used with couples during early stage breast cancer.
There is extensive evidence that emotional and social support positively influences women's abilities to cope to breast cancer.
The first person that a woman with breast cancer turns to for support is her husband or intimate partner.
However, as partners of breast cancer patients are struggling with their emotional distress, they often feel inadequate about their ability to help their wives and partners cope.
It is important for practitioners to understand this concept of twofold stress.
