A Guide to Navigating the Practical and Emotional Challenges of Caring for a Child Who Is Very Ill

To many parents, it is hard to imagine a more upsetting reality than one when their child is hospitalised, severely sick or terminally ill. In WHEN YOUR CHILD IS SICK, psychosocial counsellor, Joanna Breyer, distils decades of experience working with sick children and their families into a comprehensive guide for navigating the uncharted and frightening terrain. She provides expert advice to guide them through the hospital setting, at-home care and long-term outcomes.

Breyer's practical techniques and direct advice will help parents feel more in-control of a circumstance that has turned their life upside down. She alerts parents to key personnel in the hospital, gives dialogue prompts to help parents ask for the help they need, addresses the needs of their other children at home, offers advice on how to best use friends and family who want to help, includes stories from other families who have been in the same situation and teaches coping techniques to help both parents and children weather the stress of prolonged illness and even death.

WHEN YOUR CHILD IS SICK is a valuable guide to managing the myriad practical and emotional complications of an impossible situation.
