Product Description: There's more to treating cardiopulmonary patients than meeting biological needs; many psychosocial needs must be addressed to help patients not only survive but also thrive while living with illness. Psychosocial Interventions for Cardiopulmonary Patients: A Guide for Health Professionals helps health care providers meet these needs by presenting practical strategies that teach patients to cope with the emotional stress of cardiac and pulmonary disease.Written by Dr. Wayne Sotile, director of psychological services for the Wake Forest University Cardiac Rehabilitation Program, this invaluable guide provides simple interventions that can make a profound difference in the quality of life and physical recovery of cardiopulmonary patients. The book is filled with case studies, sample scripts, and tactics that show health professionals without specialized training in mental health how to help cardiopulmonary patients confront the challenges of rehabilitation.Part I provides an introduction to designing and implementing effective psychosocial interventions. The author explains why psychosocial counseling is important, how to recognize serious maladjustment problems that require referral to a mental health professional, and how to present recommendations in terms that match the goals and concerns of patients.Part II describes how to help patients become effective emotional managers-those who thrive in the face of illness. Readers will find specific strategies for- disrupting negative coping mechanisms,- promoting stress management,- altering the behavior of patients with Type A coping patterns,- enlisting family strengths and minimizing the effects of family weaknesses,- addressing the issues children face when a parent or grandparent is ill,- replacing negative thinking patterns with more realistic and positive patterns, and- much more.Readers will also learn how to help patients create and maintain a supportive environment for rehabilitation, an essential component of effective emotional management.Part III addresses some of the special issues that recovering cardiopulmonary patients confront, including- the sexual aspects of living with heart and lung illnesses,- smoking cessation,- the unique challenges faced by older patients and patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and- adherence to rehabilitation programs.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
