Abstract
Written by leading mental health professionals, this warm and accessible parenting book for children with chronic illnesses offers clear, practical guidance for all aspects of the journey. It is recommended by professionals at the American Diabetes Association, Invisible Disabilities Association, the Crohn's Colitis Foundation, and other expert national and regional sources.
For all its joys, parenting is a complex job, and when your child has a chronic illness, the stress can feel overwhelming. When your child is diagnosed, you begin a parenting journey filled with strong emotions, difficult choices, confusing words, and interactions with numerous professionals and specialists.
You're focused on ensuring your child gets the best possible treatments for their symptoms, so it's easy to overlook or dismiss the impact the illness can have on your relationships and emotions. This book places your psychological well-being front and center, so you can be the best caregiver possible for your child.
Along with suggestions for making laughter and mindfulness part of your daily self-care routine, it offers guidance for choosing the right therapist for your family, should extra support be needed. Every family's journey with chronic illness is unique, but you don't have to go it alone.

Abstract
volution des pratiques médicales inclut dorénavant le développement des soins palliatifs pédiatriques. En effet, la spécificité de la prise en charge des enfants et des adolescents vivant avec une pathologie pouvant menacer leur vie a été démontrée grâce à l'expertise et au travail de réflexion entrepris et soutenu par des intervenants spécialisés, autant en Amérique du Nord qu'en Europe.
La recherche dans ce domaine soulève certaines problématiques particulières, à la fois sur les plans médical, psychologique, éthique, émotionnel, relationnel et spirituel. En regroupant et en explorant plusieurs d'entre elles - contexte de périnatalité ou de handicap, gestion de la douleur, poursuite de la scolarité, rôle du pédiatre et de l'infirmière, souffrance des membres de la famille et des soignants, décès à l'urgence, impacts des décisions concernant l'alimentation, les niveaux de soins et la non-réanimation, possible conflit opposant famille et équipe de soins, importance du suivi de deuil...-, ce livre contribue à donner à chaque jeune patient un encadrement global et adéquat visant la meilleure qualité de vie possible dans le respect de son développement. Référence essentielle, il témoigne de la complexité des gestes et des décisions des soignants qui, ne pouvant plus guérir la maladie, sont appelés à soulager tous les malaises du petit malade et de sa famille, y comprix ceux de l'âme.

Coping with Chronic Illness-Children
Abstract
This book tells true and poignant stories from both sides of the physician-patient/parent relationship and provides a unique glimpse into how parents and physicians think, feel, and interact. The stories are grouped under four sections: Hope, Compassion, Communication, and Trust.
Each section includes stories contributed by parents from all across the United States and by pediatricians practicing at many of the best children's hospitals throughout the country. The parents tell of interactions with physicians that had a significant impact on them and their child and offer context and insight that promote empathy and reflection. The physicians tell of interactions with patients and families that served as learning moments in their career and promote the humanization of medicine and show there is more to a physician beyond their scientific knowledge and white coat.
The stories are edited by Barry P. Markovitz - a pediatrician specializing in critical care medicine who has been in practice for more than 20 years and by Ann F. Schrooten - the parent of a child born with a chronic complex condition who has more than 15 years of experience interacting with pediatric subspecialists and other healthcare professionals who cared for her son. The editors have written commentaries to the stories to provide an independent perspective on the events and messages conveyed and to encourage reflection, inquiry, and discussion.
In addition to being a valuable resource for pediatricians, pediatric subspecialists, nurses and other healthcare professionals, the book will also appeal to families of children living with complex medical conditions because it shares physician encounters and behaviors many have experienced in the care of their own children. By giving a voice to both parents and physicians, the goal is to create a bridge to better understanding that can improve communication, minimize conflicts, and foster trust and compassion among physicians, patients, and families.

Abstract
For those who find themselves at the intersection of lifetime love and overwhelming obligation, the right path is often painful and difficult to find. When illness invades the couple relationship, partners ask themselves and each other some really hard questions: "What do I want to do for this person whom I have loved for many years?" "How much of my life do I give up to take care of my beloved?" "How do I sit by my beloved's side and watch her suffer?" While writing In Sickness as in Health, authors Barbara Kivowitz and Roanne Weisman learned through interviews with many couples, as well as with medical, spiritual, legal, rehabilitation and psychological experts, that couples find their own ways to deal with illnesses and catastrophic injuries.

Abstract
A compassionate resource for friends, parents, relatives, teachers, volunteers, and caregivers, this series offers suggestions to help the grieving cope with the loss of a loved one. Often people do not know what to say?or what not to say?to someone they know who is mourning; this series teaches that the most important thing a person can do is listen, have compassion, be there for support, and do something helpful. This volume addresses what to expect from grieving young people, and how to provide safe outlets for children to express emotion. Included in each book are tested, sensitive ideas for ?carpe diem? actions that people can take right this minute?while still remaining supportive and honoring the mourner?s loss.
