Neoplasia mammaria e mobilizzazione di risorse personali e relazionali - Breast cancer and mobilization of personal and relational resources The evaluation of the quality of life perceived in pathological conditions allows to develop interventions aimed at promoting the well-being of patients from a subjective perspective. In particular, a pathological condition can be considered as a source of threat or else a source of challenges and stimuli. It is therefore possible to identify some positive aspects in relation to the illness, in terms of its impact on daily life and long-term projects. On the basis of these premises, we will discuss results obtained from a study conducted among 46 women interviewed after surgical treatment for a breast cancer. More specifically, we will analyse: a) the individual resources perceived and mobilized while coping with disease; b) the identification of positive consequences related to disease and of daily opportunities for experiencing complex and engaging states of consciousness (optimal experiences); c) the evaluation of doctor-patient communication. These elements will be also related to the decision making style of the participants, in particular to their need for closure. Key words: cancer, resources, doctor-patient relationship.
