Understanding Women's Recovery from Illness and Trauma

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.
