About the authors
"I wish I’d had this smart, fearless, insightful handbook on my own journey through the Lyme thicket." --Pam Weintraub, Cure Unknown: Inside the Lyme Epidemic
by Sandra K. Berenbaum, LCSW, BCD, and Dorothy Kupcha Leland
Foreword by Dr. Richard Horowitz, author of
Why Can't I Get Better? Solving the Mystery of Lyme and Chronic Disease
Lyme disease can cause puzzling symptoms in children, including pain, fatigue, gastrointestinal upsets, learning disabilities, behavioral issues and psychiatric problems. The illness can be hard to diagnose, however, and controversies in the medical world complicate the picture even more. Parents trying to find help for their suffering children often don’t know where to turn.
When Your Child Has Lyme Disease: A Parent’s Survival Guide is filled with information parents need to know about the illness, as well as practical strategies based on the authors’ personal and professional experiences. It offers guidance on finding the right medical care, coping with treatment, developing effective boundaries with others who don’t understand what your family is going through, advocating for your child’s educational needs and managing day-to-day family life.
Sandra K. Berenbaum, who has counseled Lyme patients and their families for over 20 years, has developed responsive psychotherapy, a unique approach to helping families overcome the challenges of tick-borne disease. Co-author Dorothy Kupcha Leland, whose daughter has the illness, is a national activist who writes the blog Touched by Lyme.
