Abstract

In the terminal stage of cancer, Man becomes sensitive to a spiritual stress as autonomous existence. The stress is caused by the discrepancy between objective situations and subjective feelings and also sense of values. In the terminal stage, it is usually difficult to palliate objective situations of autonomous decline. Therefore, the medical staff should support the change of subjective feelings and sense of values. This time, we experienced two cases who were successfully palliated subjective pain by communications focused on 'the support' and 'the interrelation' to the stress by autonomous existence in the terminal stage of cancer. Case 1 achieved an autonomous recovery of the self by the action 'It entrusts them with the mind-body'. Case 2 achieved an autonomous recovery of the self by clarifying an autonomous concept. In both cases, the stress has been relieved.
