Family therapy & chronic illness by Joan D Atwood( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Treatment for the chronically ill has traditionally focused on physical factors and symptoms, despite the fact that chronic illness also affects life in an emotional and spiritual way. The approach toward treatment described in this volume addresses all aspects of a patient's life, including their interpersonal experiences and relationships, presenting family therapists and family physicians as part of the same treatment team. This volume thus provides a foundation for understanding the role illness plays in family systems. The meaning an individual gives to an illness is profoundly influenced by and influences that person's social world. In turn, social culture and social networks both shape and are shaped by the individual's experiences. Exploring how the meaning of chronic illness is defined tells us much about the individual's interpersonal relations and the resultant meaning given to the person's illness. As a consequence, family therapy must be an integral part of the treatment plan for chronically ill patients . Family Therapy and Chronic Illness approaches chronic illness from a leading-edge perspective. This approach enables therapists to listen attentively to complicated narratives. Because these stories, feelings, and emotions are difficult to describe, the clients have demanding "telling" tasks while therapists have demanding "listening" tasks. This book sends an important message not just about the chronically ill, but also about their families, therapists, and doctors, and how they can work together to develop the best treatment plan possible."--Provided by publisher

Procedural Concerns in Couple Counseling by Joan D Atwood( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This document presents a theoretical approach to couple counseling, a systemic approach which views each spouse as having a personal and relationship history that transcends the present marital one. It notes that this approach views a person's life style along two dimensions: the first dimension examines the person's relational experiences at the family, relational, and self level; the second dimension involves an understanding of how well each spouse has dealt with developmental issues and what impact these events (birth, death, marriage, divorce) has had upon them. A discussion of assessment in systemic therapy notes that presenting problems are viewed for their greater symbolic value rather than for their content value. The areas of tracking, genograms, sculpturing, circular questioning, inventories, hypothesis testing, and the holding environment are addressed. The next section examines several interventions in systemic therapy: alliances, homework assignments, reframing/relabeling, contracts, paradoxical interventions, prescribing the symptom, and split opinion. Reasons for the failure of therapy are considered, including family secrets, affairs, nodal events, symptom relief, and reactivity levels. (Nb)

Pms Awareness by Joan D Atwood( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study was conducted to examine the incidence of premenstrual mood changes in a non-clinical population and to explore how women report that these mood changes affect their interpersonal relationships. Women (n=101) completed a questionnaire about their background and their physical and psychological responses to the premenstrual experience. Most of the respondents were between the ages of 31 and 40; most were married without children; most were either Catholic or Jewish; and most reported being white collar workers with almost one-half reporting some college education. Most respondents reported that they did not experience mood changes when they first began menstruating. The majority of women (78.4%) reported experiencing mood changes one week prior to menstruation. Of the women who reported premenstrual mood changes, over 68% reported feeling sad and depressed, 31.7% reported feeling anxious, and 18.8% reported feeling angry and edgy. Forty-five percent of the women specifically stated that their mood changes affected their interpersonal relationships. These mood changes appeared to increase over time, as women got older. (The discussion section examines how these premenstrual symptoms can function in a couple relationship and considers the implications for individuals, couples, and families.) (Nb)
