Abstract

The present authors reported the process of psychotherapy for the three women with uterine cancer who were found to be anxious and depressive during the period after their surgical operation. They all appeared very nervous to other patients around the time of the operation while the interpersonal conflicts increased their anxiety and anger. As they are inclined to over control themselves, they have suppressed their own feelings. Therefore, psychotherapy including improvement in expressing their feelings, managing their anger and learning the relaxation technique recovered their psychological stability.
