The Psychology Department of UNOP will accompany the patient and his family throughout their long journey. Through this journey, they will experience the loss of health as well as their daily routine prior to their diagnosis and, in some cases, the loss of their own life. However, working together in sessions and giving emotional and psychological support the parents and guardians will also experience moments of hope, happiness, gains, and in occasions the satisfaction of overcoming cancer.
Psychology belongs to the department of holistic medicine, which its principal objective is to minimize the suffering of the families and to offer quality attention through interdisciplinary work, since our human vision is that they are bio-psych-social and spiritual beings. This means that you care for the whole human being: his physical, emotional, psychological, social, and spiritual parts.
