Cancer and the Family
An extensively updated and extended new edition of this highly successful book on how cancer affects every individual within a family and has a major impact on the family structure itself. It covers a very broad range of topics from sexual problems to how children view cancer (in their parents, their siblings and in themselves).
Cancer remains one of the most common and serious diseases at the dawn of the new millennium, and since the publication of the first, highly successful edition, great strides have been made as research and clinical studies have shed new light on the important role of the family in cancer. This new edition incorporates this new knowledge and discusses areas such as:
* The role of culture and belief systems
* Specific family intervention
* The impact of genetics on the response of patients and their families to cancer
The editors and authors of this second edition have succeeded in providing a refreshing and comprehensive view of the issues confronting families around the world when one of their members is diagnosed with cancer.
