Abstract: The aim of the study was to explore the impact of a short group rational behavioral therapy (RBT) on a quality of life among cancer patients. The study involved 217 people with cancer. 137 people formed the experimental group, which took part in the seven days, group psychotherapeutic classes, based on RBT. The control group consisted of 80 patients waiting for a therapy. The study was longitudinal and consisted of pre‑and posttest (8 weeks after the end of the therapeutic influence). The quality of life was estimated by the Polish version of the SF‑36v2. It was observed, that in the experimental group the quality of life increased in all areas of a health related quality of life, except for a physical functioning. These changes, with the exception of modifications in a role emotional scale, were bound up with RBT. In the control group the quality of life improved in the scales: a social functioning, a mental health and a bodily pain. However, the observed changes were higher in the experimental group. In both groups there was no deterioration in the quality of life in any of the investigated scales. In summary, the short group RBT can be a valuable complement to standard cancer therapy, particularly for people who seek help and have higher motivation to work.
