Existentially-Based Individual and Group Counseling Models for Adult Cancer Survivors
Jessica Z. Taylor, Brian Hutchison, and R. Rocco Cottone
Despite an active discussion in medical literature regarding existential issues related to adult cancer survivors, counseling literature shows a dearth of any such focus. This paper will review three existentially-based individual counseling models and four existentially-based group counseling models for use with cancer survivors. Implications for selecting counseling models most appropriate for clients' needs are discussed.
