  • GROUP-THERAPY WITH TERMINALLY ILL AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PSYCHIATRY YALOM, I. D., Greaves, C. 1977; 134 (4): 396-400

    Abstract

    The authors describe their four-year experience with a therapy group for patients with metastatic carcinoma. Patients in the group are helped by helping one another, by moving out of a morbid self-absorption, and by finding that they have much of value to share and to teach. The most important aspect of the group experience is the "presence" it offers; patients find support and the opportunity to express their needs and fears openly. The authors believe that group therapy is a valuable modality for the treatment of terminally ill patients and that much can be learned from such groups for the everyday therapy of the living.
