Psychosomatic Management of the Patient With Malignancy.

Psychosomatic Management of the Patient With Malignancy. Abstract The title of this slim book is misleading; one wonders if the publisher thought this would make it sell better. Actually, the book presents a discussion of several aspects of the psychological side of what has been called "comprehensive medicine." Though one chapter is devoted to the cancer patient, the other six cover topics of broader significance to the physician, such as the process of medical interviewing, general principles of medical treatment, and the use of psychotherapy by the nonpsychiatrist. It presents no new research or special findings; rather, it represents the distillation of the experience of the author. Hence, the basis for comparison are books like those by Aldrich,1 Hollender,2 Levine,3 or Lief.4 Against such competition, this volume does not stand out. Dr. Garner has earned the reputation of being an excellent, inspiring teacher, but his abilities in the clinic and classroom fail References 1.

Abstract

Abstract The title of this slim book is misleading; one wonders if the publisher thought this would make it sell better.

Though one chapter is devoted to the cancer patient, the other six cover topics of broader significance to the physician, such as the process of medical interviewing, general principles of medical treatment, and the use of psychotherapy by the nonpsychiatrist. It presents no new research or special findings; rather, it represents the distillation of the experience of the author.
