Description 

Praise for the Sixth Edition:

"Adds an important international perspective on illness and disability. The personal narratives help bring the real world of people who are [survivors] to the forefront of the scientific discourse." —Doody's Medical Reviews

Now in its seventh edition, this bestselling classic continues to be the most comprehensive and diverse text available on the psychosocial aspects of illness and disability. It is substantially revised to reflect the growing disparity between the haves and the have-nots and incorporates social justice issues throughout the text. In addition to new and updated information integrated throughout the book, the seventh edition features two new chapters addressing social justice in regards to depression and disability, and the psychosocial aspects of grief, death, and dying. Additionally, the text now includes an Instructor’s Manual and PowerPoint slides.

Combining a mix of seminal work from rehabilitation counseling legends with current theoretical and treatment approaches, the book provides a practical, real-life perspective and offers broad and inclusive coverage of the day-to-day challenges of working with a diverse and marginalized population. Additionally, the text analyzes barriers to enabling patients with disabilities and improving their quality of life. Chapter objectives, review questions, and personal narratives in each chapter facilitate in-depth learning.
