Living with Arthritis provides an overview of arthritis that is grounded in the realities of living with a long–term condition often characterised by pain, fatigue, physical limitations, anxiety or depression. The book draws not only on the growing body of literature in psychosocial rheumatology but also on Professor Julie Barlow s own research the rich depth of understanding offered by qualitative approaches complements quantitative investigations of pertinent issues.

A substantial section of Living with Arthritis is devoted to interventions with a psychological basis, focusing on the belief that anything which promotes a positive change is of vital importance in assisting people with arthritis to make the adjustments needed to attain a satisfactory quality of life.
