  • Consider the question: Is it helpful to think of prostate cancer as a Couples’ Illness?
  • Review the impact of prostate cancer on intimate relationships (emotionally and sexually).
  • Discuss factors that contribute to successful recovery.
  • Explore the possibilities for sexuality after treatment (including why they often fail).
