Dr. Susan Labott-Stewart has a new book published by the American Psychological Association (APA) called Psychological Treatment of Patients with Chronic Respiratory Disease.

This concise primer shows clinical health psychologists how to assess and treat adults suffering from chronic respiratory disease. It provides basic medical information for practitioners, especially those performing in outpatient settings who may be unfamiliar with these conditions, and gives psychologists clear, practical answers to the following questions:

  • What is this disease?
  • What is its impact on this person’s life?
  • How, as a psychologist, should I assess and treat this person?

In this book readers will learn to identify common symptoms of respiratory dysfunction, and the basic features of common pulmonary diseases including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, fibrosis and pneumoconiosis, pulmonary arterial hypertension, sarcoidosis, cystic fibrosis, and sleep apnea.
