ABSTRAKT

Toward the end of the 1970s, the increased possibility of curing cancer influenced such disciplines as oncology, psychology, psychiatry as well as social and nursing care. Growing attention was given to psychological aspects and issues related to quality of life, survival, and rehabilitation. Consequently, the psychosocial approach to cancer has acquired an important role in its ability both to promote psychological health throughout the course of the disease and to improve the adjustment process in cancer patients. The aim of this article is to reconsider psychosocial approach in psycho-oncology, starting from the multidimensional definition of quality of life to the most recent data regarding the spiritual dimension as it is expressed in transpersonal psychology and in mindfulness interventions.
