The purpose of this chapter is to introdude a study that was carried out with an intimacy workbook in a health facility providing psychological and rehabilitation services for disabled children and their families. The decision to test the efficacy of such a workbook rests on two main reasons. First, some considerations were born from our daily clinical practice and the results of an empirical study made about parents of children with a malformation syndrome or infantile cerebral palsy. This study led us to investigate more accurately the needs and resources of families we support and verify whether our intervention practice, that is psychoeducational counseling, can indeed fully meet our patientsŉeeds, or a more effective and efficient intervention is available.
