Working with Chronic Illness
Download Full Text
"Chronic illness is one of the most trying periods in the life of the patient and his family... The interactions among the different care providers in the medical setting as well as their interaction with the patient influence the patient's functioning and recovery. That is why, the family therapist can play an important role in helping the family tide over the difficult period, facilitating the recovery of the patient, and providing that unobtrusive nudge which may guide the family towards putting the opportunity provided by chronic illness to good use."
