This master's-level text is the first to eschew traditional disabilities to focus specifically on the unique characteristics and needs of individuals with disabilities such as multiple chemical sensitivity, fibromyalgia, and Lyme disease, or those currently increasing in prevalence (e.g., diabetes, autism, PTSD), and explore their implications for rehabilitation counseling practice. The text is also unique in its examination of how disability causes, types, and patterns are changing in response to current medical, social, cultural, and environmental trends and addressing necessary changes to rehabilitation policies and practices to better serve consumers with emerging disabilities. The book explores important sociological and environmental phenomena such as global warming, pollution, poverty, violence, migration patterns, addiction, and substance abuse, and the changing age demographic of the United States that has altered the landscape of disability policy and rehabilitation services in the 21st century. Each chapter provides specific examples of disabling conditions and discusses their medical, psychosocial, and vocational significance. The authors examine implications for rehabilitation assessment, planning, and placement, and emphasize changes needed to rehabilitation policy and practice.

While quietly mourning her husband on the very street corner where he was killed in a motorcycle accident, Jude was run down by an impaired driver who left her with a serious brain injury. As a result she lost the care of her children, legal autonomy, important aspects of her health, and a sense of self. She was so angry that life had heaped these insults upon the indisputable fact of her rapidly advancing Huntington's disease that she vehemently rejected offers of professional help-until she met Sol Mogerman, a counselor hired by her insurance company. The first part of this book gives a session by session account of the counseling journey that led to Jude's forgiveness of a world that injured her and acceptance of her place in it as bearer and example of unconditional love. The second part puts forth the ideas, attitudes and skills that Sol engaged with Jude in their successful process of rehabilitation counseling. "The Story of Jude is the book on rehabilitation counseling Carl Rogers would have written had he gained the depth of understanding Sol has acquired from the experience of his own head injury In keeping with the spirit of rehabilitation counseling, the book is highly accessible and practical. The writing is clear, direct, and virtually jargon-free-no mean feat for a book on counseling."-Allan Wade Ph.D. "This book is a landmark in the field of rehabilitation counseling. Mogerman's unpretentious style and ease of presentation brings to life a complex subject in a manner that is at once comprehensive, demystifying and inspiring."-Richard Routledge M.A.

Cancer care today often provides state-of-the-science biomedical treatment, but fails to address the psychological and social (psychosocial) problems associated with the illness. This failure can compromise the effectiveness of health care and thereby adversely affect the health of cancer patients. Psychological and social problems created or exacerbated by cancer--including depression and other emotional problems; lack of information or skills needed to manage the illness; lack of transportation or other resources; and disruptions in work, school, and family life--cause additional suffering, weaken adherence to prescribed treatments, and threaten patients' return to health. Today, it is not possible to deliver high-quality cancer care without using existing approaches, tools, and resources to address patients' psychosocial health needs. All patients with cancer and their families should expect and receive cancer care that ensures the provision of appropriate psychosocial health services. Cancer Care for the Whole Patient recommends actions that oncology providers, health policy makers, educators, health insurers, health planners, researchers and research sponsors, and consumer advocates should undertake to ensure that this standard is met.
