Description

Talk, Think, Feel is an exploration of emotions in children with cancer, their families, and the doctors who take care of them. In this thought-provoking work, Nathaniel Bayer offers insight into the emotional side of medicine and the range of feelings that pervade pediatric oncology and life in general. This book is a collection of reflections, stories, observations of clinical encounters, and extensive direct quotes from interviews Bayer conducted with twenty pediatric oncologists across the United States. The narrative voices are illuminating in their candor and provide a window into the thoughts of doctors and the close relationships they share with patients. The poignant vignettes-about the lives and even the deaths of children with cancer-serve as a way for readers to further understand the illness experience and to reflect on their own emotional responses. This book is part of an increasingly important conversation about the role of emotions in medicine. Join the discussion.show more
