afterwards

Afterwards is a high quality information booklet aimed at patients who have recently undergone treatment for cancer and is intended to help the psychological recovery process. It was commissioned by clinical psychologist Dr Mike Osborne who felt there was a need to clarify the confusing range of emotions and strong feelings that may be experienced.

 

The visual images seem to reach patients on a deeper level than words alone and are a powerful aid to dialogue between patient, medical staff and family or friends.
