Part of the The Downstate Series of Research in Psychiatry and Psychology book series (DSRPP, volume 4)


It is a pleasure to discuss John Sargent’s paper, because he offers the health professional a very useful guide to understanding families who are confronted with juvenile diabetes and because he provides a clear basis for some forms of intervention which those families require. The author recommends to us a particular theoretical approach to chronic illness, an approach I find compatible with my own experiences and thinking--and that’s pleasing too.
