Understanding Women's Recovery From Illness and Trauma

  • Margaret H. Kearney - University of Rochester, Rochester, NY, USA, Boston College, USA, University of Rochester, USA


August 1999 | 200 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The author of this volume draws on real life experiences to present a practical guide to the `why' and `how' of human responses to illness. Margaret Kearney provides practical help to counsellors who may not have been exposed to many aspects of women's experiences of illness; draws extensively from the research literature and her own nursing experience to identify the common ground of women who have moved through the difficulties of illness to satisfactory outcomes.
