Item description for Multiple Sclerosis: A Guide for Families by Rosalind C. Kalb Rosalind C. Kalb PhD...

Families experiencing multiple sclerosis often find themselves in uncharted territory. Prior patterns of interacting with each other may no longer work; roles often shift with dramatic emotional impact; guilt, anger, sadness, and a sense of burden may create a barrier to intimacy, joy, growth, and family unity. There are ways out of this debilitating situation, and many families have restored their balance, humor, productivity and family solidarity. Multiple Sclerosis: A Guide for Families can lead the way for your family to strengthen its coping skills and to receive targeted information about the disease and its ramifications. This complete yet highly readable guide for families living with multiple sclerosis addresses these issues and more.

Reviews - What do customers think about Multiple Sclerosis: A Guide for Families?

A thoroughly "user friendly" compendium of information, advice and resources for families having to deal with this disease  Feb 3, 2006
Now in a newly updated and expanded third edition, Multiple Sclerosis: A Guide For Families by clinical psychologist Rosalind C. Kalb (Director of the Professional Resource Center, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, New York) is a thoroughly "user friendly" compendium of information, advice and resources for families having to deal with this debilitating and progressive disease. Of special note are two new chapter editions: "Planning for Possible Care Needs" and "Parenting A Child Or Teen with MS". Multiple Sclerosis: A Guide For Families draws upon specialists from the fields of neurology, general medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, psychology, social work, law, and people with MS. Enhanced with a comprehensive list of readings and resource, this is the primary resource most especially recommended for non-specialist general readers having to deal with MS issues.
Hand this to your family and your spouse.  Oct 21, 2000
By addressing issues such as sex and emotions, Rosalind Kalb has made it possible for people to use this book as reference to discuss topics with their families and spouses that may be difficult.

Not only was this book helpful for me, it aided my husband and family in understanding the challenges a person with MS faces on a daily basis, some of which may be undetectable to the human eye.

This book provided my husband and family with a way to adapt to the new parts they would play in our relationships becuase of the MS.

I recommend each person with MS hand this book to their family, friends and spouse, then quietly walk away.

very usefull information - especially for the newly diagnose  Sep 26, 1998
Having recently been diagnosed with MS, this book was very informative. Everything from symptoms, family situations, insurance information,to emotional and physical issues, finances, and life planning information. I really recommend this book to anyone diagnosed, or anyone having a family member of friend diagnosed, with MS.
