Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, University of California, UCLA School of Medicine.


The need for a large variety of psychosocial interventions is enhanced as increasing numbers of patients with cancer have longer survival. This article reviews the four interventions used most commonly: (1) education, (2) behavioral training, (3) individual psychotherapy, and (4) group interventions. It examines the outcomes of each type of intervention. This comprehensive review of the intervention literature reveals the availability of a wide range of options for patients with cancer and their potential psychological and physical health benefits.
