How do you cope with a life-challenging disease? How you do respond can have a profound effect on the physical course of the illness. There is a healing power in hope, and a destructive power in despair. Attitude matters. Some people seem to be "naturally" better at creating the right attitude, but we can all learn to improve our coping skills. This book is a practical compendium for those living with or dealing with with life-challenging diseases. Detailing the many ways of coping that Professor Rubin Battino has learnt during his extensive professional experience - from friends and support groups, from research and from practice - it is written to be thoroughly accessible and informative, as it explores a wide range of techniques and methods that have proved to have a healing influence. These include: guided imagery, alternative medicine, relaxation methods, including Jackobson's Progressive Relaxation technique, meditation, support groups, structured writing, art therapy and nutrition. Featuring a variety of exercises and strategies, and assessing the uses and benefits of each, "Coping" is a complete guide to facing serious illness with hope and resourcefulness. Packed with useful advice on practical subjects such as communicating with medical personnel, and concluding with an extensive appendix of useful contacts, this book is simply a companion for everyone dealing with life-challenging disease.
