Speigel (psychiatry and behavioral sciences, Stanford University School of Medicine) was the first to demonstrate that group support for cancer patients results in significantly enhanced survival times and in measurably greater quality of life less anxiety, less depression, and half as much pain. In this book he and Classen (psychiatry and behavioral sciences, Stanford University) articulate the principles of conducting supportive-expressive group treatment with the medically ill. They describe the rationale and practical tools for constructing and facilitating therapy groups. They also address priorities for living and fears of dying, strategies for symptom-control, and other matters which arise in support groups. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
