Summary Perceptive and thorough, Relationships in Chronic Illness and Disability explores the interpersonal issues that arise when relationships evolve under the challenges of chronic illness. The authors provide a sensitive yet practical examination of three interactive relationship-illness processes: relationship change, supports and stressors, and relationship-focused coping. Interventions for nurturing close relationships under these difficult circumstances as well as issues of theory and method round out this much-needed volume. This volume from the Sage Series on Close Relationships adds to our understanding of illness-relationship processes and provides new information, useful to professionals as well as researchers, students, and interns in social work, rehabilitation and occupational therapy, leisure studies and recreation, gerontology, psychology, nursing, and family studies
