Families Living with Chronic Illness and Disability by Paul W. Power

Book Description

To help families manage an intense medical-related event, Power and Dell Orto propose that a family-oriented life and living perspective should be combined with a family intervention philosophy. Stressing acknowledgement of the adverse effects of the illness and an affirmation approach to family struggle and opportunities, the authors explore issues relevant to treatment, family adaptation, quality of life, and family survival. A unique feature of the text includes the organization of the chapters around thought-provoking personal statements followed by questions/experiential tasks designed to stimulate thought and discussion. This book is must reading for health and allied health professionals, including physicians, nurses, rehabilitation counselors, social workers, psychologists, family advocates and a useful textbook for professionals-in-training.
