My interest in helping cancer patients adjust to their illness began
in 2000, when I started a 3-year collaboration with an oncologist.
I saw about 1200 of his outpatients, while making clinic rounds
with him 1 morning a week for 3 years.2
This experience led to the design
of a research study of the value of brief (6-session) cognitive therapy to
aid in adjustment to cancer.3
