Changing Faces
Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: There are over 400,000 people in Great Britain with a scar, blemish or deformity which may severely affect their ability to lead a normal life. This practical but sensitive book explores the complex and often distressing problems and issues that result from looking `visibly different', and highlights a range of approaches which can enhance the care and support offered by all members of the professional team.

The opening section of the book gives a flavour of the experience of having a disfigurement. It demonstrates the human experiences of being significantly visibly different compared with the norm, a norm which is either defined for us by the culture in which we live, or by ourselves.

Important characteristics:

· addresses a neglected but commonly occurring problem

· includes contributions from people who are themselves visibly different

· opens up the experiences of, and offers guidance to professionals in a range of disciplines working in this area

· reviews research in an accessible style

· outlines and discusses the importance of appropriate service provision

Health care professionals in a range of disciplines, students, families of the disfigured and the disfigured themselves will all find this very readable book of enormous benefit. It is an authoritative and reassuring resource with an innovative approach.
