Not Easily Forgotten? Discussion of Dr. Koocher’s Paper

  • Bernard H. Fox
Part of the The Downstate Series of Research in Psychiatry and Psychology book series (DSRPP, volume 5)


The efforts of Drs. Koocher and O’Malley (1981) are unique and valuable, and are worthy of a place among the important works on psychological aspects of cancer. It is unfortunate that Dr. Koocher’s paper is too short to cover many of the items the team dealt with in the book. For an audience like this, it would be valuable to read the book itself.
