Psychosoziale Fragen

  • S. Husebø


Menschen leben in einem sozialen Umfeld; sie haben einen Beruf und eine Arbeit oder haben keinen Beruf und/oder auch keine Arbeit. Alle haben Gefühle, Gedanken, Befürchtungen, Freunde und Familie. Vieles ist in ihrem Leben passiert, bevor sie von Krankheit betroffen wurden. Wenn der Patient von einer ernsten Erkrankung getroffen wird, erhält die Biographie der Patienten, ihre Erfahrungen mit Leben und Krankheit eine große Bedeutung. Sie haben Stärken und Schwächen, bevor sie krank werden. Diese Stärken oder Schwächen können sich aufgrund der Krankheit ändern, sie können die Krankheitsentwicklung und den Umgang mit der Krankheit negativ oder positiv beeinflussen (Cassel 1982; Barinaga 1989).
