Workshop e seminario "Coping with cancer"
Il Dipartimento di Psicologia dei Processi di Sviluppo e Socializzazione, presenta il seminario "Coping with cancer" nell'ambito dell'omonimo Workshop.
Merluzzi studies coping processes in people with cancer and cancer survivors from the perspective of social learning theory and, in particular, self-efficacy theory. The latest NIH (National Cancer Institute) grant-supported project focused on methods for determining cultural bias in assessment in health psychology research. Papers in preparation focus on: the structure of coping for African American and Caucasian cancer patients and survivors; the pathways to quality-of-life for African American and Caucasian cancer patients and survivors; and role of maltreatment on the quality-of-life of African Americans with cancer. Current interests focus on conceptual and culturally informed models of cancer survivorship including resilience trajectories and the refinement of the measurement of distress in cancer survivors including the prevalence of depression, anxiety, symptoms, and problems..
