Family Resilience and Chronic Illness: Interdisciplinary and Translational Perspectives (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


This interdisciplinary volume offers theoretical, empirical,

and practical insights into the strengths of families beset by chronic health

issues. Featuring topics that run the lifespan from infancy to late adulthood,

its coverage reflects both the diversity of family challenges in long-term

illness and the wealth of effective approaches to intervention. The component skills

of resilience in life-changing circumstances, from coping and meaning making to

balancing care and self-care, are on rich display in a framework for their

enhancement in therapy. The book's expert contributors include tools to aid

readers in the learning and teaching of concepts as they model respectful,

meaningful research methods and ethical, non-judgmental practice.

Among the topics covered:


families survive and thrive through the premature birth of an infant.


coping and resiliency among families of individuals with sickle cell disease.


family science approach to pediatric obesity treatment.


and resilience of children and families involved with the foster care system.


families facing breast cancer: emerging trends and clinical recommendations.

The unfolding

of unique problems in later life families.

With its mix of practical and empirical expertise, Family Resilience and Chronic Illness: Interdisciplinary and Translational Perspectives has much to

offer both researchers in the family resilience field and mental health

practitioners working with clients with chronic illness.
