The Breast Cancer Notebook is a compassionate, beautifully written journal tool for women who have chosen to participate in group counseling after receiving a breast cancer diagnosis. Using a voice that conveys respect for and knowledge of the varieties of experience a breast cancer diagnosis can bring, this book challenges the reader to delve as deeply as she can into her individual experience. Intimate details of the illness and its life-altering effects on the self, family, work, love relationships, and friendships are explored. The authors also provide invaluable information about communicating with one's medical team while gently encouraging readers to consider sensitive issues such as negotiating financial and workplace challenges, approaching sexuality and intimate relationships, and developing new techniques to reprioritize nutritional, physical, and spiritual self-care.

The Breast Cancer Notebook is intended to be used concert with its companion book for group therapists, Group Psychotherapy for Women with Breast Cancer.
