Omtale: Counselling and Psychotherapy for Families in Times of Illness and Death
Living with serious illness can have profound emotional effects both on patients themselves and on those close to them. With clarity and compassion, this text explores the difficulties and dilemmas those who are ill and their families face, offering specific guidelines for the professionals who work with them. Building on its successful first edition, this text draws on recent developments in research and clinical practice in providing a theoretical and practical framework for working with illness.
Thoroughly revised in its second edition, this book: * Features new chapters on the cultural constructs of illness, working with migrant families, illness in later life, death and palliative care and supervision * Explores issues of working with diversity, covering gender, class, race and sexuality * Discusses the impact of working with those facing serious illness on health care professionals, offering strategies for reducing the risks of burnout, compassion fatigue and secondary traumatisation Written by a recognized expert in the field, this innovative and challenging book provides essential insights for professionals working or training to work with those facing illness and death, including doctors, nurses, counsellors, psychologists, psychotherapists and social workers.
