CANCER PATIENT AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITHIN THE FAMILY AND AS COUPLE

Dealing with cancer is a very difficult and distressing experience both for the patient and for his/her family and friends. In such a difficult and painful realm converge various professionals, such as the general practitioner, the medical oncologist, nurses and psychologists.
In particular, psycho-oncology has the task of supporting the patient during the phase of adapting to the illness; furthermore it provides training to all professionals involved and suggests effective strategies in counseling the patient.

It is a set of knowledge and skill sets in constant evolution, on which the professional identity of the Psycho-Oncologist (SIPO, 1998) is based upon.
The psychologist who works in the oncology field takes care of the patient and of his/her family. For the latter ones the psychological support is given during the patient’s illness, but it can continue also after the death of the patient, thus acting as support during the mourning period. In particular, the Psycho-Oncologyist conducts both individual and group psychotherapy, leads self-help groups and focuses on determining whether the patient manifests psychopathological reactions.

 

The psychological distress that a person shows during an oncological disease is not closely linked neither to their vulnerability nor to their predisposition to psychopathology, but rather to the state of crisis that the disease brings. The same goes for family members who experience the change brought by the cancer diagnosis of the loved one.
What happens when a person learns they have a tumor?
