How to Navigate Your Way From Diagnosis to Treatment and Beyond
A cancer diagnosis can cause a torrent of unfamiliar emotions felt by both the patient and those who care for them. The Cancer Companion is a compassionate, down-to-earth guide for those navigating these difficult and complex emotions. Its simple structure and comprehensive approach turns modern psychological research into constructive strategies for dealing with anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance, management of relationships, and many more components of cancer-related distress.
