Psycho-oncology equally involves patients and their family circle. It takes account, not only of the neuro-psychological effects of disease and/or its treatment, but also of the consequences on lifestyle, thought patterns, relationships with others, etc. It is ensured by psychiatrists and psychologists who intervene with cancer patients and their close circle, during and after treatment.
Its aim is to consider and offer support in all the psychological, psychiatric, behavioural, family and social dimensions associated with cancer.
At the centre, the psycho-oncology team proposes:
- Consultation with a psychiatrist
- Individual consultations for patients, inside our outside the centre
- Consultation with a psychologist
- Individual consultations for patients, inside our outside the centre.
- Consultations for cancer patients’ spouses or close circle.
- Group therapy for children
- Psychological support for children, for whom a family member has cancer, whether cared for at the centre or elsewhere. This group welcomes children of all ages with their parents. It enables children to talk about disease in their presence, through different communication tools: speech, drawing, games, etc.
Group therapy sessions for children are organised two Wednesdays per month at the DISSPO. For further information, call the DISSPO secretaries: +33(0)2 31 45 40 02
