Individuals&#8217; responses to their chronic illness or disability (CID) vary widely. Some are positive and productive, some negative and self-defeating, and some have elements of both. Coping with Chronic Illness and Disability synthesizes the growing literature on these coping styles and strategies by analyzing how individuals with CID face challenges, find and use their strengths, and alter their environment to fit their life-changing realities. The book&#8217;s first section provides readers with the major theories and conceptual perspectives on coping, with special emphasis on social aspects and models of coping with different types of CID. In Part Two, an array of specific medical conditions is covered. Each chapter supplies a clinical description, current empirical findings on coping, effective medical, physical, and psychological interventions, employment issues, and social concerns. This book includes: Up-to-date information on coping with high-profile conditions, such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injury In-depth coverage of HIV/AIDS, chronic pain, and severe mental illness Coverage of therapeutic modalities adopted for treatment of people with CID Review of the current state of coping theory and research Appendix of instruments frequently used in assessment of coping The editors&#8217; skillful balance between theoretical and practical material will help rehabilitation specialists (particularly psychologists, counselors, social workers, and health-care providers) develop new insights into promoting successful coping, and discern new means of changing its less effective forms. Students in the helping professions, as well as individuals experiencing CID, may also find this multifaceted book useful for understanding some of the psychosocial dynamics of living with CID.
This book examines the impacts of oil spills and subsequent rehabilitation process on the breeding biology, and breeding and moult phenology of African Penguins in the short, medium and long term. It forms part of a broader research programme to quantify the conservation value of de-oiling African Penguins. This study documents the systematic follow-up of de-oiled African Penguins after the 1994 Apollo Sea oil spill over a period of 10.5 years to assess the restoration success of cleaning oiled birds. Previous studies focused mostly on the post-release survival and rehabilitation success of the oil spill victims over a three to five year period. This study examines the extent to which African Penguins are successfully restored into the breeding population, how successfully they breed, and whether they experience any long-term costs of reproducing. As such, it provides a robust assessment of the long-term impacts of oil pollution on the population dynamics of African Penguins, and the conservation value of de-oiling contaminated birds. The results of the study are vital for the future management of seabird rescue operations during oil spills, not only in South Africa, but globally.
