The Deepening Shade
Psychological Aspects of Life-Threatening Illness
Sourkes, Barbara
The Deepening Shade is an elegant synthesis of the psychology of life-threatening illness. The book’s evocative power derives from the interweaving of clinical conceptualization with the words of patients and family members. Rather than focusing on death, Sourkes explores living with a life-threatening illness.
