Description - Armfuls of Time by Barbara M. Sourkes

"I just wish I had armfuls of time." These are the words of a four year old facing a life-threatening illness. This text portrays the psychological experience of such children, who are irreversibly changed from the moment of diagnosis. Barbara Sourkes is a psychologist who specializes in psychotherapy with children who have cancer and other serious diseases. In the account, she describes how she works with these children, using drawings, soft toys and dolls, stories and real medical instruments to allow them to communicate their experience of the illness, the treatment they undergo, their relationship with their families, and their feelings of grief and loss in coming to terms with the prospect of death. Making use of the words of children, offering interpretations and practical advice, this is a book that should be useful reading for those concerned with the care of terminally ill children.
