A Cancer Psychologist Between Two Covers

Dr. Andrew Kneier has devoted his career to helping patients master the many challenges and dilemmas that come with a cancer diagnosis. From his work with thousands of people in therapy sessions and cancer support groups, Dr. Kneier has compiled an incomparable body of knowledge about their most urgent questions and concerns. This groundbreaking book distills his vast experience into ten free-standing essays that will help you work through the issues that are most relevant and important to you, including:

- Family Matters

- Learning from Your Emotions

- Mastering Anxiety

- Cancer as a Gift?

- Five Existential Dilemmas

- Cancer and Your Life Story

Dr. Kneier has discovered and developed innovative ways of thinking and coping that have helped his clients and their families come to terms with personal issues and face them head-on. Whether you're gathering the courage to communicate honestly with your spouse and children or having trouble determining what your prognosis actually means for you, Dr. Kneier will guide you through the questions and answers that have helped thousands of others who have also navigated this challenging journey.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

Andrew Kneier, pioneering psychologist at the University of California, San Francisco, has been therapist to thousands with cancer. This groundbreaking book delves into the particular concerns that patients with the disease (and their families) face, time and again, and explores suffering and resilience.

As the only clinical psychologist at the UCSF Comprehensive Cancer Center for many years, Dr. Andrew Kneier met with nearly 7,500 patients in one-on-one sessions--almost certainly more than any other therapist in the country. This book is the distillation of their collective insights, anxieties, and more, based on the top ten topics that cancer patients bring up in therapy. It addresses questions such as: How can God exist in a world with such suffering? What should I tell my family? Can any good come from this? How do I continue my life story? This book will serve as a therapist between two covers for cancer patients, survivors, their families, doctors, and anyone else who needs the wisdom of the most experienced cancer therapist.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
