520 1  "Close relationships can be vital to a woman's recovery 
       from breast or gynecological cancer and the myriad 
       stressors that accompany diagnosis and treatment. Helping 
       Couples Cope with Women's Cancer shows readers not only 
       how to enlist the patients closest support person in 
       coping with the disease, but also to help that partner 
       with the stressors, such as feelings of inadequacy and 
       loss, that so often come with the role." "The authors 
       recognize the challenges couples face, the central role of
       communication in coping, and the individuality of each 
       patient and couple. In addition to proven intervention 
       techniques and helpful assessment tools, the book features
       case illustrations, "What to do if" sections, 
       sociocultural considerations, and suggestions for when the
       patients caregiver is not her partner." "This book will 
       benefit a range of health and mental health practitioners,
       including counselors, social workers, clinical 
       psychologists, psychiatrists, and nurses. Graduate 
       students planning a career in health psychology or couples
       therapy should also find it a valuable resource."--Jacket.
