Psychotherapy

Category: Mental/Spiritual/Psychological

Research has shown that some form of psychotherapy may improve a patient's quality of life. It can help reduce anxiety and depression frequently occurring in people with cancer. Psychotherapy has not, however, been demonstrated to increase survival in people with cancer by itself. Psychotherapists believe that it can help people find the inner strength they need to improve their coping skills, allowing them to more fully enjoy their lives. It can also be useful in overcoming depression and anxiety, which are common in people with cancer. People may seek individual therapists, or those who work with couples and/or entire families in order to deal with the impact of the cancer and its diagnosis. Psychotherapy also may be practiced with groups, in which a number of people meet together to discuss common experiences and issues and to learn specific coping techniques. Unlike self-help groups, psychotherapy groups are offered and managed by a professional therapist.
