Coping With Physical Loss and Disability
Author: Rick Ritter, MSW
Publisher: Loving Healing Press
ISBN: 978-1-932690-18-7

Rjck Ritter, a social worker, veteran, and himself disabled certainly knows about this topic. Written in an easy to comprehend and easy to use workbook style, it's outstanding as a reference tool. All facets of dealing with disability are covered: the physical, spiritual, mental and emotional, as well as the actual practical logistical adjustments that need to be made.

Coping with a physical loss and disability is difficult, and attempting to work through the emotional, financial, logistical, family and other areas of change can seem hugely daunting. Knowing where to start can be an immense help.

Ritter's workbooks offers just that kind of help, and in an easy to understand series of questions. Through honest answers to these questions, you can learn the best method of dealing with your difficulties. You will learn how to establish a support system of caring professions, family and friends. You will be led through the process of setting your daily schedule, rehabilitation and recovery, along with determining realistic short and long term goals.

Additionally, the author includes an extensive list of suggested readings, films on pertinent issues and an excellent guide to therapeutic techniques. Also helpful is the listing of available organizations, foundations and associations, including organizations that support sports for persons with disabilities.

A specific section of the workbook is prepared especially for therapists and will prove most helpful to professionals in assisting their clients with disabilities.

An outstanding resource for anyone dealing with a disability, professionals in all areas of therapy as well as friends, family and caretakers of the disabled. Highly recommended as a permanent part of the professional's reference library. ( )
