Share Article

Disabled veteran and social worker Rick Ritter, MSW provides a strategic system for re-engaging the disabled with their own lives in his new workbook "Coping with Physical Loss and Disability."

This workbook provides more than 50 exercises designed to empower those with physical loss and disability to better understand and accept their ongoing processes of loss and recovery. The exercises in "Coping with Physical Loss and Disability" were distilled from ten years of clinical social work experience with more than 100 clients. This technique applies equally well to those suffering from quadriplegia, paraplegia, amputation, cancer, severe burns, HIV/AIDs, hepatitis, lupus, and neuro-muscular disorders. In fact, this workbook addresses the psychological and social effects of any malady arising from accident, injury, surgery, or disease. Beautifully illustrated by Tyler Mills. Also available in Spanish Language edition

"This workbook is a tremendous resource that is practical and easy to use. The author shows his connection with this material in a way from which we can all benefit." —Geneva Reynaga-Abiko, Psy.D., Clinical Psychologist, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign Counseling Center
