Description - Coping Skills Therapy for Managing Chronic and Terminal Illness by Kenneth Sharoff
This practical, hands-on book offers a broad range of skills to overcome the problems medical clients face with disease onset. The author expanded his Cognitive Coping Therapy model (CCT) of care into the medical arena, and identifies 3 distinct phases in the treatment protocol: Crisis, Consolidation, and Normalization. Each phase constitutes a distinctive set of tasks and each task a set of coping skills. This book details how to implement these skills, with sample case illustrations throughout. Special attention is given to specific illness trajectories and their stresses. Proven effective as a brief therapy intervention, this approach is readily useful for the mental health therapist and counselor, nurse or medical social worker in an outpatient or inpatient facility.
