From the Back Cover

"

The newest edition ofThe Psychological and Social Impact of Illness and Disabilitycontinues the tradition of presenting a realistic perspective on life with disabilities and then improves upon its predecessors with the inclusion of illness as a major influence on client care needs. Articles included represent the best of developing concepts, theory, research, and intervention approaches. Classic articles kept from previous editions round out a diversity of viewpoints that will enrich student understanding of what is important in beginning rehabilitation practice. Further broadening the scope of this edition is the inclusion of personal perspectives and stories from those living with illness or disabilities. These stories offer a glimpse into what it is like to cope day to day with these issues and direct examples of how effective current care models and rehabilitation theories can be.

Relevant, expert articles plus insightful narratives combine to offer a bridge between theory and reality and guide students and professionals in rehabilitation practice closer to their goal of enhancing the quality of life for all individuals.
