| Under the direction of Dr.
David Spiegel, the Psychosocial Treatment Laboratory pursues its mission
to study inter- relationships among the components of human behavior -- psychological, physiological, and external
environment. The research conducted by the members of Dr. Spiegel's staff
has resulted in a number of books and publications, including Dr. Spiegel's highly
acclaimed Living Beyond Limits, from which this web site draws its theme.
Dr. Spiegel's latest book, Group Therapy for Cancer Patients, to be published in mid-December, 1999, presents the rationale, methods, and results of intensive supportive care for those with cancer. It is intended to be a guide for "putting the caring back into health care."
