Title:
Psychological interventions for patients with cancer: Psychological flexibility and the potential utility of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Authors:
Hulbert-Williams, Nicholas J.; Storey, Lesley; Wilson, Kelly G.
Abstract:
Cancer is an illness affecting patients' physical and psychosocial well-being: high numbers report problematic levels of distress at many points through diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. Conclusive evidence for the long-term benefits of psychological interventions is lacking and this may be because (1) they employ a too limited scope of underlying therapeutic model; or (2) that they are too focused on improving psychopathological outcomes. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) may add components not emphasised elsewhere and may provide a more suitable model of adjustment and coping. Following a comprehensive literature search a theoretical and conceptual discussion of the potential for ACT-based oncology interventions is presented.
