Use the Making Sense of Brain Tumour (MSoBT) therapist manual to provide individualised psychosocial support for people with brain tumour and their families.
Individuals with brain tumour and their family members can experience considerable distress associated with the diagnosis, an uncertain prognosis and complex neurological and functional impairments. The psychological support needs of people with brain tumour are often overlooked and there is a lack of brain tumour-specific psychological therapy resources.
The MSoBT therapist manual was developed to support health professionals to deliver person-centred and goal directed counselling and rehabilitation to adults with brain tumour and their family members. A clinical trial indicated significant improvements in mental health, existential well-being and QoL for people with brain tumour relative to standard care. In the 2017 international palliative care guidelines for adults with glioma, the MSoBT program was endorsed as showing clinically significant benefits for managing depression.
The MSoBT therapist manual is intended for use by professionals with qualifications in clinical psychology and neuropsychology. The neuropsychological assessment and psychotherapy approaches require appropriate training at a post-graduate level.
