||The purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of a Psychological Intervention based on the positive psychology and the cognitive behavioral therapy in relieving "psychological problems" at the time of adjuvant chemotherapy treatment (Folfox Protocol) in patients with colorectal cancer. This Psychological Intervention is structured and designed to enhance positive emotions in these patients and will be called "Enhancing Positive Emotions Procedure" (EPEP). The design of this study was of two groups with pre-post-test and follow-up comparisons. All participants were recruited between October of 2012 and February of 2014. 52 subjects diagnosed with colorectal cancer were recruited at the Portuguese Institute of Oncology, Oporto, Portugal. Results of this research suggest that some features could be modified by the EPEP procedure, whereas some others would remain unchanged. Some dimensions of quality of life, as well as anxiety and positive emotions could be slightly improved by the EPEP Thus, coping skills and depression would not be affected by the EPEP. Thus, it can be stated, with caution, that EPEP should be useful to improve well-being in CRC patients receiving chemotherapy.
