Understanding Psychosocial Adjustment to Chronic Illness and Disability Book Review:

Rehabilitation practitioners face the difficult task of helping clients adjust to chronic illness or disability. This can be a long and trying process for both practitioner and client. With this handbook, however, practitioners and students can gain a wealth of insight into the critical issues clients face daily. This book presents the dominant theories, models, and evidence-based techniques necessary to help the psychosocial adjustment of chronically ill or disabled persons. Each chapter is written from an evidence-based practice (EBP) perspective, and explores how important issues (i.e., social stigma, social support, sexuality, family, depression, and substance abuse) affect persons adjusting to chronic illness and disability. Key features include: A review of psychopharmacological treatment options for depression, anxiety, and other disorders coinciding with rehabilitation The effect of rehabilitation on the family, including key family intervention strategies Strategies for using positive psychology and motivational interviewing in rehabilitation Multiculturalism and the effect of culture on the adjustment process Ancillary materials including an instructor's manual with a syllabus, examination items, PowerPoint presentation, and answers to class exercises By incorporating research-based knowledge into clinical rehabilitation practice, health care professionals can ensure that people with chronic illness and disability receive only the best treatment.

Pain and Disability Book Review:

Pain--it is the most common complaint presented to physicians. Yet pain is subjective--it cannot be measured directly and is difficult to validate. Evaluating claims based on pain poses major problems for the Social Security Administration (SSA) and other disability insurers. This volume covers the epidemiology and physiology of pain; psychosocial contributions to pain and illness behavior; promising ways of assessing and measuring chronic pain and dysfunction; clinical aspects of prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation; and how the SSA's benefit structure and administrative procedures may affect pain complaints.

Effective Patient Education Book Review:

Effective Patient Education helps health professionals and students develop the skills and knowledge to conduct effective patient education in a highly efficient way. It emphasizes a team approach to patient education, recognizing that, because of the complexity of health care, many health professionals are involved in patient care. This book is therefore written for nurses, physicians, physical therapists, dietitians, pharmacists, and other health care professionals who share responsibility to guide their patients in enhancing and maintaining health and well-being.Effective patient education is a way of communicating that fosters a partnership between the patient and health professional. It involves more than giving information and instruction. In order to conduct effective patient education, health professionals must recognize that individual patient variables influence the degree to which a patient will follow health advice. The health professional can assess the patient's preexisting beliefs and attitudes, fears and anxieties, and individual life and family circumstances in order to communicate health recommendations in accordance with individual patient needs.
