Description
The statistics are sobering: over 200,000 men in the United States are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year. With this diagnosis, men are expected to psychologically combat the worry, practical concerns, and the emotional and physical changes during an immensely trying time. How to help?In Managing Prostate Cancer: A Guide for Living Better, Dr. Andrew J. Roth, a psychiatrist specializing in psychological support for cancer patients, provides the emotional skills and strategies necessary to help patients deal with the challenges a prostate cancer diagnosis brings to everyday life. These tools, which Dr. Roth terms "Emotional Judo," effectively teach patients to identify what their fears are rooted in, how to distinguish the rational and irrational aspects of their thoughts and behaviors, make healthier choices to promote a more positive approach, and ultimately transform their lives into a more fulfilling and peaceful journey.

display_description"Teaches patients with prostate cancer and their loved ones strategies for how to live better with the questions and challenges that arise with this diagnosis. Over 200,000 men in the United States are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year. How they medically combat this disease is up to their medical teams and the latest research. But how they psychologically combat the worry, practical concerns, and all of the changes in their lives? It's up to the individual himself, as well as family and caregivers, and it is an equally important component in the patient's recovery. Dr. Andrew J. Roth, a psychiatrist who specializes in psychological support for cancer patients, provides the emotional skills and strategies necessary to healthfully deal with the challenges that a prostate cancer diagnosis brings to daily life. These tools, which Roth terms "Emotional Judo," will also help healthcare givers to provide improved support for their patients and families. For the last twenty years, Dr. Roth has served as the Attending Psychiatrist of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and has helped members of oncology treatment teams practice the best ways to deal with patients' emotional needs. Dr. Roth helps patients at all stages of the disease learn the best ways to accept and adapt to the consequences of their cancer treatment, including the physical complications of urinary, erectile or bowel dysfunction, fatigue, hot flashes, and the demoralizing recurrence of disease after treatment. While there are a number of good books that touch on the diagnostic and treatment processes from beginning to end, Dr. Roth's readable and relevant book is the first to focus on the emotional implications of these physiological symptoms and life changes. By focusing on a specific readership (men with prostate cancer and their loved ones) rather than a broader group, Dr. Roth offers the most effective and tailored tools for coping with any and all aspects of the disease"-- "No one can forecast the outcome of prostate cancer. Diagnosis, treatment decisions, and treatment complications are fraught with uncertainty and distress. In Managing Prostate Cancer, Dr. Andrew Roth teaches patients with prostate-cancer and their loved ones strategies for how to live better with the questions and challenges that arise with this diagnosis. These tools will also help healthcare givers to provide improved support for their patients and families"--
