Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pain Recovery for the Familyprovides a solution-oriented approach for family members to maintain a healthy life balance while providing support to someone with chronic pain.

Chronic pain is a life-changing condition, and not just for the person in pain; chronic pain afflicts the whole family. Even a well-functioning family is likely to be thrown out of balance when one of its members has chronic pain. Family members commonly report experiencing feelings of guilt, helplessness, depression, anxiety, and even resentment. Yet their suffering is often overlooked. In many cases, the pain sufferer's problematic use of painkillers or other substances prescribed for pain management adds to the family's confusion and distress.

Includes self-assessments and writing exercises designed to address the many facets of chronic pain and addiction and their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual effects on the family.

Synopsis:

Clear, straightforward explanations of concepts inform and educate in a way that is easy to understand.

Synopsis:

An interactive guide to help family members of someone with chronic pain and problematic use of addictive substances. It explores the challenges of living with chronic pain and addiction in the family and offers ways to restore physical, mental, emotional and spiritual balance.
