Core Tip

Core Tip: The number of cancer survivors is increasing, but emotional disorders persist. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) has shown significant effects in improving negative emotions. Due to limited physicians and high costs, internet interventions have become a solution. Web-based interventions for breast cancer patients have proven feasible, and research on internet-delivered CBT is growing. It is helpful to reviewing web-based CBT and its application in cancer survivors and provide intervention insights for scholars and psychological therapy references for patients.
