Denial and Self-Image in Stroke, Lung Cancer, and Heart Disease Patients
Levine, Jacob; Zigler, Edward
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 43, 6, 751-757, Dec 75
Stroke, lung cancer, and heart disease patients were found to employ denial, as indicated by the relatively small difference between their real and ideal selves before and after the onset of illness. The greatest amount of denial was found for stroke patients. Cancer patients displayed more denial than did heart patients. (Author)
