Abstract

Surgery of the head and neck leads to profound changes of body image, including disfigurement and difficulties with verbalization. The psychologic importance of alterations in these areas will be discussed as well as their effect on the conduct of psychiatric treatment. Psychiatric intervention in this population demands an active approach and special preparation for the therapeutic encounter is necessary.
