Abstract

This chapter summarizes four current controversies in the field of psycho-oncology: (1) the benefit of screening for distress among cancer patients; (2) the effectiveness of psychological interventions among cancer patients; (3) the role of positive psychology (optimism, benefit finding) in cancer care; and (4) the benefit of group therapy in extending survival among cancer patients. Each controversy is briefly described with a general overview of the opposing viewpoints, a summary of the state of the science, and suggestions made for future directions in each case.
