Abstract

Stress response syndromes have begun to receive research attention in cancer, including melanoma, Hodgkin's disease, breast cancer, and mixed-diagnosis samples. This paper focuses on conceptual and assessment issues in the application of the trauma model to adaptation to cancer. Among the central considerations: differentiating cancer from other traumatic events, the utility of conceptualizing stress responses along a continuum in this population, diagnostic issues, and preliminary recommendations for therapeutic interventions.
