dc.descriptionThis is the peer reviewed version of the following article: Psychological interventions for patients with cancer: Psychological flexibility and the potential utility of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. European Journal of Cancer Care, 2015, 24(1), pp. 15-27, which has been published in final form at http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/ecc.12223 This article may be used for non-commercial purposes in accordance With Wiley Terms and Conditions for self-archiving.en
dc.description.abstractCancer 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.
