photo Finding Your Way
By Ben Achtenberg
for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

While cancer treatment has become significantly more effective, it often includes procedures which are painful and frightening for the patient. At Boston's Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, adult and adolescent patients are learning a variety of simple behavioral techniques which help them to understand their physiological reactions to treatment, to reduce their anxiety level, and to cope more effectively with pain and discomfort. Finding Your Way observes patients learning techniques of breathing control, affirmation, and visualization, and later using these tools while undergoing treatments which include a bone marrow aspiration and biopsy. Produced by Oscar nominee Ben Achtenberg (Code Gray.) Study Guide included.
