Multiple sclerosis : a guide for families by Rosalind Kalb( Book )

6 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 948 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because most people who are diagnosed with MS are between the ages of 15-55, the disease has a significant impact, not only on the individual with the disease, but also on their family members and loved ones. This brand-new third edition of "Multiple Sclerosis: A Guide for Families" continues to help families to strengthen their coping skills in dealing with the emotional aspect of this disease. Families experiencing multiple sclerosis often find themselves in uncharted territory. Prior patterns of interacting with each other may no longer work; roles often shift with dramatic emotional impact; guilt, anger, sadness, and a sense of burden may create a barrier to intimacy, joy, growth, and family unity. This book helps families navigate through the challenges created by MS, from the time of diagnosis onward. The topics have been selected to give families a roadmap - helping them to understand the potential impact of MS on daily life, strengthen their coping strategies, and plan more effectively for the uncertain tomorrow. Its goal is to enable families to move toward a restoration of balance, humor, productivity, and family solidarity. In line with this goal, the book provides a comprehensive list of readings and resources. The authors include specialists from the fields of neurology, general medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, psychology, social work, and law, as well as people with MS. Together they provide information and guidance in those areas of daily life of greatest concern for families living with MS - adapting to the disease, developing a relationship with one's physician, sexuality, pregnancy, parenting, cognitive and emotional challenges, caregiving, and long-term planning. This multidisciplinary group reflects the comprehensive care and teamwork that have become the model for effective MS care. The special features and updates include: chapters, which have been updated; recommended resources and reading sections have been fully updated; and two new chapters cover Planning for Possible Care Needs, and Parenting A Child or Teen with MS
