written by Howard Brody
This unusual book emphasizes the role of telling our stories in the healing process. It is about what sickness means to the sufferer. The stories aid our sense of what it means to be sick, the ethics of caregiving, and ways to improve the care of the sick.
Stories of Sickness, when first published in 1987, helped inaugurate a renewed interest in the importance of narrative studies in health care. This new edition has been thoroughly revised and expanded to deal in greater depth with narrative ethics, disability issues, and much more.
An invaluable resource for health care professionals, students of medicine and bioethics, scholars, and individuals coping with illness.
