The moment a loved one is diagnosed with a serious illness or disability, your world changes. Every assumption you had about the future vanishes. Your plans are replaced with doubt, fear, and anxiety. You're plunged into limbo, into a state of constant uncertainty. Living in Limbo: Creating Structure and Peace When Someone You Love Is Ill offers hope for caregivers. This book is a useful resource of coping strategies and behavioral changes you can make as you take on the mantle of caregiver. For Laura Michaels, her life changed instantly when her husband Bill was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. A wife and working mother of three, Laura was devastated but couldn't let her grief and shock stop her from functioning. She needed to adapt and respond to her new reality. Although Laura's experience was with cancer, the philosophical and practical approaches discussed here are applicable for anyone supporting a loved one with an acute or chronic illness, or physical or mental disability. Backing up Michael's intensely personal story are the observations of her coauthor, psychiatrist Claire Zilber, MD. Claire's contributions include clinical commentary as well as helpful anecdotes of her work with patients and family members.

Annotation This title analyzes the multi-faceted nature of impoverishment and vulnerability which emerges from long periods of conflict-induced displacement. It reviews the situation of displaced in the context of a wide range of measures of vulnerability including material well being, employment, shelter, human and social capital and concludes that significant vulnerability remains even after many years of displacement.

Limbo has traditionally been viewed as a place between heaven, on the one hand, and purgatory and hell, on the other, to which the patriarchs, who lived under the old law, and babies who died before being baptized into the Christian faith have been consigned. Like purgatory, it is a dark place but not deprived of grace. Now that the Roman Catholic Church has declared that limbo is not an official church teaching, the idea of limbo has been freed from ecclesiastical constraints and available for reflection on the human condition on this side of the grave. Living in Limbo by Donald Capps and Nathan Carlin focuses on the acute limbo situations that are an integral part of human life, including the vicissitudes of growing up, of forming committed relationships, of finding employment and staying employed, of undergoing life-threatening illnesses, and of experiencing dislocation and doubt. Using cases and examples of real-life persons, the book identifies the forms of distress likely to occur throughout the duration of the limbo experience, and it also identifies the internal and external resources that individuals draw upon as they cope with the stresses and uncertainties of living in limbo. Drawing on the traditional view, especially reflected in Christian art, that Christ descends into limbo to comfort and liberate its occupants, Living in Limbo comes down on the side of hope versus despair. In reading about other limbo dwellers, readers will meet themselves-or someone they love and care about-and will be encouraged by the very fact that they are not alone. Although it is not a pleasant place to be, limbo is not a place of solitary confinement, and one derives strength and resilience from the presence of the others.

Several thousand children are the victims of international parental child abduction around the world each year.
