Description : Our personalities and our identities are intimately bound up with the stories that we tell to organize and to make sense of our lives. To understand the human meaning of illness, we therefore must turn to the stories we tell about illness, suffering, and medical care. Stories of Sickness explores the many dimensions of what illness means to the sufferers and to those around them, drawing on depictions of illness in great works of literature and in nonfiction accounts. The exploration is primarily philosophical but incorporates approaches from literature and from the medical social sciences. When it was first published in 1987, Stories of Sickness helped to inaugurate a renewed interest in the importance of narrative studies in health care. For the Second Edition the text has been thoroughly revised and significantly expanded. Four almost entirely new chapters have been added on the nature, complexities, and rigor of narrative ethics and how it is carried out. There is also an additional chapter on maladaptive ways of being sick that deals in greater depth with disability issues. Health care professionals, students of medicine and bioethics, and ordinary people coping with illness, no less than scholars in the health care humanities and social sciences, will find much value in this volume. Unique Features: *Philosophically sophisticated yet clearly written and easily accessible *Interdisciplinary approach--combines philosophy, literature, health care, social sciences *Contains many fascinating stories and vignettes of illness drawn from both fiction and nonfiction *A new and comprehensive overview of the "hot topic" of narrative ethics in medicine and health care

Description : From the author of the #1 bestseller & award-winning poetry book, Healing HER, comes the eagerly anticipated second book in the Soul-Skin Series. "Story Medicine by Sez Kristiansen is a deliciously healing piece of work that will make you want to run wild into nature's arms. Look out Mary Oliver, you have a new prodigy!" The Danish Literary Magazine, 2021 This book is dedicated to those who seek a remedy of which this world cannot heal alone. Story Medicine offers a remedial well of story, prose and poetry that aids every soul-sickness. Ancient traditions have known the combined power of emotion, nature and story for centuries. They harnessed it through song, myth, fairytale, folklore, archetype and poetry; administering a specific story to a patient whose imbalances could not be understood by the mind alone. Something much more potent was needed for the one who suffered from deep beneath the human bone. These days, we live in a type of soul-famine from the story medicine that used to nourish and connect us to the greater order of the cosmos - to our place in the natural world and our purpose in the community. But we still have the ability to self-medicate, and it is equally potent. These stories have been wildcrafted from the wilderness: the one within and without - the one above and below - the one we live in now and the one our ancestors call us back to through the eaves. They seam the two worlds together to make medicine for deep and restorative healing. It is said that there is a story remedy for every soul-sickness you experience in your life. All you have to do is find it... This book will offer you the remedial seeds of symbolic, metaphoric and emotive language, so that you may begin to plant your own medicinal garden within yourself.

Description : A collection of women's illness narratives Stories of Illness and Healing is the first collection to place the voices of women experiencing illness alongside analytical writing from prominent scholars in the field of narrative medicine. The collection includes a variety of women's illness narratives--poetry, essays, short fiction, short drama, analyses, and transcribed oral testimonies--as well as traditional analytic essays about themes and issues raised by the narratives. Stories of Illness and Healing bridges the artificial divide between women's lives and scholarship in gender, health, and medicine. The authors of these narratives are diverse in age, ethnicity, family situation, sexual orientation, and economic status. They are doctors, patients, spouses, mothers, daughters, activists, writers, educators, and performers. The narratives serve to acknowledge that women's illness experiences are more than their diseases, that they encompass their entire lives. The pages of this book echo with personal accounts of illness, diagnosis, and treatment. They reflect the social constructions of women's bodies, their experiences of sexuality and reproduction, and their roles as professional and family caregivers. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Stories of Illness and Healing draws the connection between women's suffering and advocacy for women's lives.

Description : Dealing with the joy and wisdom of the elderly, as well as with their anxiety and grief, this book shows how life stories and the reactions of others to them are of central importance to the elderly - maintaining or threatening their sense of personal well-being. Understanding the many roles these stories can play enhances the impact that nurses, welfare workers, social workers and psychologists have on the lives of elderly people. This book provides an approach to therapy based on the concept of such stories. The author shows how to use this technique by the adoption of strategies and the use of case studies. Suggested readings at the ends of the chapters and the list of definitions of some personal construct theory terms at the end of the book will make the volume useful to all professionals working in this field.

Description : In 1911, at the age of 68, Henry James began A Small Boy and Others with the intent of writing a memoir of his brother William and other members of his family. Within months, however, James's interest in others was replaced by a desire to trace his personal development. Subsequently, he began a lengthy examination of both his own past and the psychological heritage of the James family in a two-volume autobiography, A Small Boy and Others and Notes of a Son and Brother. Through the process of writing his autobiography, James maintained that “at every step of the process [he was becoming] . . . more intensely 'family.'” Documenting the rich connotations of James's phrase “intensely family,” Carol Holly examines the shame–based psychology bred by his parents and the impact of that psychology on James's literary career. Interpreting the act of autobiography as a biographical event, Holly also draws on a collection of James's largely unpublished correspondence with his sister–in–law and nephew from the period when he was writing A Small Boy and Notes . She provides a contextual interpretation of the autobiographies and offers a detailed look at the complex emotional life of James the autobiographer.

Description : Milwaukee's captivating evolution from a settlement blessed with nature's bounties to a mighty industrial workplace is presented through its people, places, and institutions. Culled from the publications of the Milwaukee County Historical Society, these articles provide intimate accounts of the area's original inhabitants, pioneering settlers such as Solomon Juneau, entrepreneurs who saw a prosperous future on the shores of Lake Michigan, ethnic and racial groups who envisioned themselves as part of that future, institutions such as hospitals and a veterans home designed to serve residents, and political leaders whose careers ranged from crook to guardian angel. Each thematic section is introduced by a short essay that supplies a context for the articles that follow. Photographs from the collections of the County Historical Society provide fleeting glimpses into yesterday's world. A collaborative effort of the Milwaukee County Historical Society and Marquette University, Milwaukee Stories brings home the adage that each one of us, great and small, contributes our individual piece to the development of local history. May each reader savor these lives from Milwaukee's past.

Description : "Until the 1970s most Tokelauans read or wrote Samoan; Tokelau was used only for oral communication. Rapid changes are being made today to ensure the continuation of the language and its acceptance in written form. This important volume draws on recordings of song, stories and interviews made over a period of 20 years to present several of the most substantial treasures of the Tokelau tradition; from the rich store of old songs and the vibrant pool of new. It provides an English translation alongside the Tokelauan original, and aspects of Tokelau culture which provide the context for performances are described. Illustrations include historic and contemporary photographs, and line drawings by the young Tokelau artist Fuimanu Kirifi. The result is a testament to the lively imagination of Tokelau composers both past and present, and a significant cultural document."--Back cover.
