Description
A Social Cognitive Perspective on Coping with Cancer: Theory, Research and Intervention presents a model of restorative well-being as a framework for reviewing research and for optimizing post-treatment adjustment. The authors depict the interrelations of variables such as personality and affective dispositions, efficacy beliefs, social cognitive variables and environmental supports in the coping process in hopes of informing future interventions and research. The authors demonstrate that while psychosocial interventions may not directly affect physical functioning or survival rates, they may have great potential to promote recovery of emotional well-being and other aspects of adjustment.

  • Comprehend the social cognitive model of restorative well-being. 
  • Identify the various variables that contribute to long-term post-treatment adjustment.
