Binding remains perfectly secure; text clean. Very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 119pp. This title was previously published as "Journal of Women and Aging, Volume 6, Number 4 1994; this is the First Edition in hardcover book form. Hardback: Pictorial Paper on Boards. This much-needed book explores the issues and consequences of chronic pain in later life. Chronic pain often accompanies the non-fatal health conditions experienced by older women, but much of the professional literature virtually ignores older chronic pain sufferers. Older Women With Chronic Pain begins to fill this void by exploring chronic pain and its effects on older individuals. Authors draw upon existing pain literature, their knowledge of aging, and recognition of the health issues facing older women to illuminate the particulars of chronic pain in later life in relation to its etiology, assessment, consequences, and management. Chronic pain is not and should not be treated as part of the natural aging process. This book stresses the importance of understanding the causes and consequences of living with chronic pain in later life. Among the specific areas that chapters explore are: physical and biomedical aspects of chronic pain in later life the importance of using a comprehensive strategy for assessing chronic pain in older women coping strategies used by older women with chronic musculoskeletal pain issues associated with cancer pain and pain management in later life the influence of chronic pain on the family relationships of older women nonpharmacologic interventions for the management of chronic pain in older women. The book includes a thorough review of the geriatric literature as well as suggestions for future research in the area of women with chronic pain. Researchers and academicians interested in the health concerns of older women, and clinicians and practitioners working with older women (and men) with chronic pain will find this book full of insightful information to help them in their work.

Very Good+ in Wraps: shows only the most minute indications of use: just a hint of wear to extremities; mildest rubbing; foxing at the outside edges and end papers; former owner's name inked at the title page. Binding shows barely discernible lean, while remaining perfectly secure; text clean. Despite some minor flaws is structurally sound and remains close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 240pp. Edited by Michaeleen Kimmey. Trade Paperback. This guide explains the theory behind the author's techniques for improving the functions of the human motor system. Feldenkrais, the originator of the Functional Integration system and author of "Awareness Through Movement", focuses his analysis on the underlying emotional mechanisms that lead to compulsive and dependent physical behaviour that inhibits the individual from reaching his full potential. The book explores the fundamental human paradox, namely, that people yearn to change yet tend to remain the same. As Dr Feldenkrais explains, this resistance to self-transformation stems from the fact that most people behave as if their future is "completely and irrevocably forfeited by what they have done in the past". In this book, he shows how the past can provide building blocks for a creative future.
