Routledge, 15.04.2013 - 192 Seiten
Intended for health care professionals working with patients who have suffered a threat to body image, whether from trauma, injury, disease, or the developmental process, Body Image and Disfigurement Care:
*offers practical advice about care
*critically appraises the existing knowledge-base
*describes the different theoretical approaches to body image disturbance
*puts forward a new model of what happens to people with disturbed body image.
While written in an accessible style, this is not a superficial text; it presents practical skills which can be used in clinical settings and these skills are based on appropriate research evidence, Interactive exercises enable the student to consolidate their learning and improve their understanding of the patient's experience of a threat to body image. Body Image and Disfigurement Care provides a sound source of help and advice about an issue of growing importance in modern health.
