ABSTRACT

The objective of the DS12 study was to assess how a stressful event such as the diagnosis of cancer can affect the spousal relationship. The study used the Distress Thermometer (DT) and the Psychological Distress Inventory (PDI); our results show that narrative medicine for the couple can contribute to stress reduction.
