Project description It is known that the onset of a chronic illness creates a crisis. This starts a cycle of social and emotional issues. How would you as the counselor help a client start to deal with a chronic illness? What interventions would you use to help the person adapt to the illness and live a productive life in spite of the illness? What type of support services would you recommend to your client? Discuss why these support services would be important and how they can help the person to start living life again. Read Chapters 10 and 11 in Health Psychology , which focuses on the characteristics of, and adaptation to, chronic illness. Chronic illness is any condition that causes physical deterioration to the body. Not only does the body have to adjust to living with a disease that is not going to get better, but the mind needs to deal with the emotions that play into the illness.
