The author of this volume draws on real life experiences to present a practical guide to the `why'' and `how'' of human responses to illness. Margaret Kearney provides practical help to counsellors who may not have been exposed to many aspects of women''s experiences of illness; draws extensively from the research literature and her own nursing experience to identify the common ground of women who have moved through the difficulties of illness to satisfactory outcomes.
