Psychosocial Trauma, Defense Strategies and Treatment Considerations in Cancer Patients and Their Families.
Singer, Barton A.
American Journal of Family Therapy, v11 n3 p15-21 Fall 1983
Discusses the psychosocial impact of cancer on patients and families. Notes that group treatment is especially effective because of curative factors intrinsic to group experience, e.g., installation of hope, universality, and cohesiveness, that allow group members to lower their defensiveness and deal more adaptively with emotional and environmental stresses.
