What you believe affects your illness and your relationships. Serious illness and loss often invites suffering in individuals and families that is not adequately addressed by health care providers.
While primarily written for clinicians, including nurses, physicians, social workers, psychologists, and medical family therapists, Beliefs and Illness: A Model for Healing takes Doctors Wright and Bell’s internationally acclaimed Illness Beliefs Model and makes it easy to understand for the patient and their families as well. Rich in clinical exemplars, Beliefs and Illness: A Model for Healing takes the reader inside the therapeutic conversation between the health care provider and family members to show the model in action-a model of healing that has been developed from over 25 years of clinical practice to help ease illness suffering by enabling clients, families, and clinicians to examine their own beliefs that may be impeding health and healing.
Beliefs are at the heart of healing.
