“Rolland understands fully that illness and disability are experiences located not only in an individual but in couples and families as well. This extremely helpful book provides a conceptual framework that can be used to support and treat people facing a range of health conditions, including newer concerns in the realm of genetics and neurocognitive disorders. Rolland’s descriptions of how illness can skew a couple’s relationship, and how to work to rebalance that relationship, are invaluable. Want to learn how developmental issues, family history, illness beliefs, and communication styles can be used to promote resilience for the patient and family in the face of a serious health challenge or disability? Read this book! I will assign it in my classes for our Medical Family Therapy postdoctoral fellows, and for our continuing education program on Integrated Care.”

—Susan H. McDaniel, PhD, Dr. Laurie Sands Distinguished Professor of Families and Health, and Director, Institute for the Family, University of Rochester Medical Center


“Rolland takes readers on a compelling journey into the lives of couples and families coping with serious and chronic illness. He grounds his work in the empirical literature and in his extensive clinical experience. I recommend this book for clinical graduate school programs and medical residencies.”

—Cleveland G. Shields, PhD, Department of Human Development and Family Studies and Purdue Center for Cancer Research, Purdue University


“This book is a treasure. Rolland has put a career's worth of insight, wisdom, craft, and humanity into every chapter. All clinicians who work with couples and families will benefit immensely from reading this important, up-to-date work.”

—William J. Doherty, PhD, Department of Family Social Science, University of Minnesota


“To read this excellent book is to sit beside a master therapist as he thinks, reflects, and practices in a biopsychosocial, systemic way. Rolland writes simply and clearly about the complexities of families coping with a variety of chronic illnesses, reminding us that ‘normative’ encompasses a wide range of emotions, beliefs, and interactions. Building on his earlier work on the unique demands of particular illnesses, Rolland provides practical strategies to engage families and include them as integral members of the healthcare team. Case examples model respectful conversations with patients and their family members during some of the most frightening and vulnerable moments of their lives. Clinicians at all levels of experience will find something useful and immediately applicable.”

—Todd M. Edwards, PhD, LMFT, Professor and Director, Marital and Family Therapy Program, University of San Diego
