Reifying Women's Experiences with Invisible Illness: Illusions, Delusions, Reality provides a platform that recognizes that the experience of invisible illness is greatly influenced by context and personal circumstance. The contributors to this book include women who exude diversity as it relates to race and ethnicity, career, religious experience, education, social support, and interpersonal relationships. From recent college graduates to senior level professionals, these women share stories that create a space to advocate on behalf of the individual who is chronically ill rather than focusing on the often privileged perspective of medical professionals.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book reflects a unique effort to capture the diverse factors that contribute to health at the systematic, cultural, and relational levels. Vital topics such as clinical experiences, family experiences, and social experiences come together to demonstrate how we can take agency in supporting improved health outcomes personally and across systems. The chapters represent a thoughtful and relatable approach to engagement and social justice for health. -- Jennifer Edwards, Walden University
As a Black woman, school psychologist, and adult education scholar, I think very deeply about how the learning and identity development of historically marginalized groups are inextricably tied to their physical bodies and their communities. Upon reading Reifying Women's Experiences with Invisible Illness, I was encouraged to see the editors' shared value of giving voice to those who are often silenced. Ultimately, this book is a counternarrative to traditional ways of thinking about invisible illnesses, as it skillfully merges the personal and the collective by problematizing how illness intersects with various other identities. -- Amber M. Sessoms, Nationally Certified School Psychologist
Reifying Women's Experiences with Invisible Illness highlights heroic women, representing a multicultural perspective on being a professional woman and living with an invisible chronic disease, while simultaneously providing the tools to overcome, and offering hope for a bright future... -- Latinia Shell, Diversity Works-Counseling, Supervision, Consultation, Training
