Individuals who are at a high risk of developing cancer can opt for genetic counseling and , if indicated, DNA-testing. The procedure of genetic counseling usually follows a traditional model that includes the completion of a family history questionnaire by the counselee, a counseling session, and a final session in which the possible DNA-test is disclosed. Willem Eijzenga investigates the prevalence of psychosocial problems in the cancer genetic counseling setting, to develop and test methods for identifying such problems in a valid, reliable and practical manner, and to develop and test interventions to incorporate such assessments as a routine part of the counseling process.
