modalidad que conjuga Ia participaci6n pre sencia! y por via de teleconferencia.

Breast cancer is an important health problem particularly in developed countries. The psychological distress associated with such health condition is an important aspect of the problem, and studies show that women suffering from this type of cancer require specialized psychological care. An ongoing 12-year Australian experience with a supportive-expressive therapy group is presented and discussed, including the use of a mixed modality of participation, both presential and via teleconference, to overcome Queensland's geographical distances and allow different women to benefit from this service.
