Making Good Use of Illness highlights from the most unique monocle of the author, Louise Giroux, Ph.D., who has combined her life-long personal experience with long chronic illness and her formal education as a doctor of counseling psychology. With over thirty years of teaching experience, she has accomplished an academic textbook that is a friendly reading text.
The text presents the theoretical formulation of Adlerian Individual Psychology. Set in contextual, as well as rich resources for applications and interventions in the area of mental health training. Individual Psychology is one of use and not of possession, ignoring the causality of illness, to focus on the possibilities available at the onset of illness in one's life.
These assumptions of Adlerian Psychology are processed through lifestyle assessment. It is a psychodynamic theoretical paradigm stemming from common sense as it challenges private logic. Taking into consideration that all human lives will encounter illness, whether by diagnosis or by osmosis.
Making Good Use of Illness: An Adlerian Approach to Chronic Illness is extremely insightful and resourceful.
A total of 10 case studies; each in introduction to respective chapters
Vignettes, 'voices' (as personal journal entries) of more than 60 people who are either patients or caregivers who live with chronic illness
Individual Psychology's assumptions as interpreted in a reader-friendly yet professional and educative manner
