New Edition Forthcoming of Book by Professor Ron Bonn

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

A new edition, the first in 16 years, of How to Help Children Through a Parent’s Serious Illness by Ron Bonn and Kathleen McCue, C.C.L.S. will be published Dec. 20 by St. Martin’s Press. The book, a manual for parents, based on McCue’s work as a child life specialist, aims to help children of all ages emerge whole and emotionally sound from the trauma of a parent’s grave or fatal illness. The original, which has become a standard in its field, has never been out of print.

New chapters, based on developments since the original publication, include “The Wonderful, Terrible Internet,” “When the Single Parent Falls Ill,” “Trauma,” “The Mentally Ill Parent” and “Genetic Diseases.” In addition to completely updating the original, the new edition contains well over 100 pages of new material.
