Objective: To assess the utility of Behavioral Activation for coping with cancer. Method: 18 patients with recently diagnosed breast cancer followed 6 protocoled sessions, aimed to recover relevant activities, eliminate illness behavior and to modify experiential avoidance patterns. Functional analysis determined concrete intervention objectives and the estimation of clinically significant change for each case. Pre-post and three months follow up changes were assessed. Results: Activity recovery is observed, specifically related to of daily living (p =.005) and leisure activities (p = .05). The presence of avoidance patterns is scarce, although recognizable. Illness behaviors are recognized and reduced (p =.03). There were no cases of anxiety and depression (HAD), although some symptomatology is detected, it evolves favorably during the intervention. Conclusions: The guidance of oncologic patients towards maintaining relevant activities of daily living during chemotherapy, seems to improve the coping with the disease. © 2020, Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
