Description:

Medical and Psychosocial Aspects of Chronic Illness and Disability, Fifth Edition helps students and counselors with little to no medical background better understand manifestations of common chronic illnesses and disabilities that their clients experience. By using the text, readers will gain a better understanding of the impact that chronic illness and disability has on all aspects of clients’ lives in order to help them build and strengthen personal resources to achieve optimal functioning and full inclusion and participation in all aspects of their life. Discussions include symptoms, diagnoses, treatments, and prognoses.Due to rapid changes in the medical as well as rehabilitation field, the fifth edition contains updated medical and psychosocial information and research. In addition, it offers more emphasis on the International Classification of Functioning Disability, and Health (ICF) as a standard for conceptualizing disability and classifying associated functional status. Also included is more thorough coverage of cultural concerns and the impact of cultural issues on the counseling process.
