Modern medicine has developed solutions that allow cancer patients to live longer lives, but depression and anxiety often make these years painful and difficult. This book develops the techniques of behaviour activation therapy into practical activities people recovering from cancer can use to recognize and overcome problems with depression and anxiety. Relieved from these two sources of emotional pain and limitation, readers of this book will be able to live life fully and apply their energy to the task of getting better. The concept of behaviour activation is deceptively simple: By reconnecting with naturally occurring sources of pleasure-in other words, by engaging in activities they already know they enjoy doing-individuals are able literally to replace feelings of depression and anxiety with feelings of accomplishment and contentedness.Successes build on one another, creating a model for ever more positive feelings in the future. This key to success, though, is to keep focusing on engaging in enjoyable behaviours without getting bogged down by pain, frustration, and worry. Keeping on track is easy with the step-by-step approach offered in the book.
