Discusses the languages of illness which we use to present our discomforts to others through an exploration of the child''s world of illness.
From the Publisher:
Through an exploration of the child's world of illness, this book discusses the languages of illness that we use to present our discomforts to others. It looks at how illness concepts are introduced to children, how "germ" rationales are incorporated into the socialization of children and how a particular morality about health and illness is expressed. In addition to this analysis of the social context within which the children's views are developing, the book presents the children's own views from three up to thirteen years of age. As a result of gaining an understanding of how children develop their illness languages, refreshing new approaches to consultations with children and new emphases on health education are opened up. This book persuades the reader to look more closely at the language of illness, allowing a reappraisal of medical practice, school health programs and class teaching, health education and even the differences in health among the social classes.
