Does being sick mean you are doomed to feeling miserable?
In today's world, where youth, productivity, and independence are highly valued, an ill person may sometimes feel worthless - the emotional anguish every bit as painful as the physical symptoms.
In Life Is a Treasure: The Jewish Way of Coping with Illness, psychologist Barbara Olevitch expertly dispels society's myths and challenges its attitudes toward illness. Drawing on Torah wisdom, it's an invaluable guide to instilling hope, meaning, and the appreciation of life, and dramatically improving the lives of ill people and their families.
This inspiring book is a treasure for patients, families, and caregivers!
