Based on the Simontons’ experience with hundreds of patients at their world-famous Cancer Counseling and Research Center, Getting Well Again introduces the scientific basis for the "will to live."In this revolutionary book the Simontons profile the typical "cancer personality": how an individual’s reactions to stress and other emotional factors can contribute to the onset and progress of cancer — and how positive expectations, self-awareness, and self-care can contribute to survival. This book offers the same self-help techniques the Simonton’s patients have used to successfully to reinforce usual medical treatment — techniques for learning positive attitudes, relaxation, visualization, goal setting, managing pain, exercise, and building an emotional support system.
