Twenty-five patients who had attended a group cognitive behaviour therapy program for breast cancer patients wereinterviewed by telephone about their experience. Responses were categorised independently and indicated that particants enjoyed the interpersonal and social environment of the group, but also acknowledged the benefits provided by the cognitive behaviour therapy modality of the group. While the majority of groups that are currently run for cancer patients are supportive, it is possible that adding a psycho-educational component may meet the needs of greater number of patients.
