The Crisis of Survival: Discussion of Mrs. Christ’s and Ms. Adams’ Paper
The presentation by Christ and Adams is a well-thought-out and impressive blueprint for psychosocial interventions with the families of childhood cancer patients. Using the eight points they cite as a guide, it is not difficult to target specialized psychotherapeutic interventions to the families most in need of these services. The only improvement I can offer to this excellent paper is a suggested extension of five more points, dealing specifically with those children who are destined to be long-term survivors and those families who will not be so fortunate.
