Counselling Skills in Palliative Care

Front Cover
Open University Press, 2000 - Palliative treatment - 183 pages
This book is aimed at people working in palliative care, helping patients and families to manage and live with chronic and progressive illnesses where treatment is no longer aimed at a cure. Palliative care professionals are encouraged to work holistically, viewing themselves and their relationships with patients as significant therapeutic resources in their own right. The authors argue that sensitive counselling skills need to be used effectively by all palliative workers, not just by counsellors.
