About this title

Synopsis:

"Challenging Cancer" shows people with cancer how they can stop feeling like victims and regain control of their lives. Nina Kfir, a psychotherapist specialising in crisis intervention, and Maurice Slevin, a cancer physician, describe how cancer patients can use the crisis that cancer brings about rather than be used by it. "Challenging Cancer" provides a unique opportunity to share the experiences of cancer patients and to learn from their insights. Group discussions at cancer workshops are reported verbatim, revealing patients' strategies for coping with the crisis in their lives and showing how they become actively involved rather than allowing things to happen to them. The book also tells the story of the late Vicky Clement-Jones, known as the founder of BACUP, the British Association of Cancer United Patients. The process of Vicky's treatment, medical as well as psychological, transformed her from a highly scientific doctor to a social reformer who achieved, through her illness, the creation of a concept and an organization. This book should be of interest to cancer patients, their family and friends, doctors, nurses and social workers.
