Group Therapy for Cancer Patients: A Research-based Handbook of Psychosocial Care by David Spiegel

Book Description

This extraordinary resource celebrates and expands on Dr. David Spiegel's discovery that a shared intimacy with mortality creates very different concerns in the patient from those that apply in conventional settings. Spiegel and Classen introduce mental health professionals to the awareness as well as the tools they will need to facilitate groups coping with existential crises. The result is a model for helping that actually helps.

Books By Author David Spiegel

Traumatic Dissociation by David Spiegel Traumatic Dissociation, Paperback (March 2007)

The book offers an advanced introduction to this symptom, process, and pattern of personality organization seen in several trauma-related disorders, including acute stress disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and the dissociative disorders.

Complementary and Alternative Treatments in Mental Health Care by David Spiegel Complementary and Alternative Treatments in Mental Health Care, Paperback (December 2006)

Written for both conventionally and nonconventionally trained mental health care professionals, the book provides both an ideal reference for clinicians whose patients inquire about CAM therapies and a critical, balanced review of the nonconventional modalities most widely used in Western countries to treat mental or emotional problems.

Trance and Treatment by David Spiegel Trance and Treatment, Paperback (April 2004)

This book provides a brief, disciplined technique for mobilizing and learning from an individual's capacity to concentrate. Putting to rest both exaggerated fears about hypnosis and overblown statements of its efficacy, this compelling volume brings scientific discipline to a systematic exploration of the clinical uses and limitations of hypnosis.

Dissociation by David Spiegel Dissociation, Hardback (May 1994)

Combines cultural anthropology, cognitive psychology, neurophysiology, and the study of psychosomatic illness to present the latest information on the dissociative process. A variety of leading experts in each of these fields bring their knowledge on the unique role that dissociation plays in moderating social and psychological effects on the body.
