A Therapeutic Approach for Treating Chronic Illness and Disability among College Students
Haemmelmann, Katie L.; McClain, Mary-Catherine
Professional Counselor, v3 n3 p105-116 2013
Research in chronic illness and disability (CID) in college students has demonstrated that students with disabilities encounter more difficulties psychosocially than their nondisabled counterparts. Subsequently, these difficulties impact the ability of these students to successfully adapt. Using the illness intrusiveness model in combination with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), the authors propose therapeutic interventions that could be taken with these students to enhance their overall well-being, adaptation and academic success. The authors also provide final thoughts with directions for future research and application.
