Living Well with Cancer: A Solution-Focused Approach
This book is about that sort of ‘both/and’ approach to the challenge of living with cancer. Starting with a recognition of the lived experience of diagnosis and treatment, a crucial part of ‘being heard’, it moves on to discuss how, by using solution-focused thinking, life may be lived well, whether it’s for a very short or, ultimately, a very long time.
Written in an informal style, as if the reader is taking part in a chatty, but powerfully effective appointment, it is for people of any age who have, or have had, cancer, as well as their families and friends. The book includes information and suggestions for health professionals who seek to help these people, and will also be highly relevant to other profoundly life-changing conditions.
Dr Dominic Bray is a consultant clinical psychologist who is very interested in developing consultations that help people with cancer and long-term conditions live what they would see as fulfilling and purposeful lives. These consultations may be his own in the form of psychological therapy, but, just as often, he spends time helping medical doctors, nurses and allied health professionals to develop their own. The backbone of his work is the person-centred solution-focused model which construes people as co-experts with professionals in working towards lives informed by what matters to them.
