Coping Well is a practical guide for those living with a life-challenging disease and for their carers.
It details the many effective coping strategies that Professor Rubin Battino has encountered through his extensive professional experience in private practice and support groups.
The book features a wide range of techniques and approaches that have a proven healing influence, including:
relaxation methods such as guided imagery and meditation
varieties of therapy such as art and journal writing
complementary medical treatment such as massage, acupuncture and hypnosis
Also included are stories from sufferers of life-challenging disease, a patient's bill of rights, a patient/doctor agreement, important questions for those facing death, a 'living will' and a general power of attorney form.
Coping Well provides valuable support for anyone facing serious illness, equipping both the sufferer and the carer with the resources required in such a difficult time.
It also explores the crucial issue of changes to the sufferer's sense of self and in relationships with loved ones.
This compassionate and imaginative resource focuses on alleviating the symptoms of serious illness and reducing the isolation that such illnesses often impose.
At the book's heart is a holistic approach to healing, integrating psychological, spiritual and emotional dimensions.
