5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent manual for all healthcare provoders May 8, 2004
Format:Paperback
Many clinicians confuse conversation skills (which most people have) with professional communication skills (which most have had little formal training in at all).
The cinicians in our practice have found it helpful in becoming more patient-centered in the goals setting process. The payoff being that patients who are more involved in their goal setiing and treatment planning are usually are more adherent to their treatment plan and demonstrate better outcomes. The book does a good job describing the difference between the traditional clinician-centered interview proceess and the patient-centered interview process and helping us blend the two. It does a particularly good job at giving strategies of how to work with various types of patients, i.e. the reticent, passive, overly talkative etc..
Strong in the fundamentals. Practical.
Highly recommended

This book was required for one of my classes and I found it to be somewhat useful. It has some pretty good case scenarios that you can definitely learn from.

I am very pleased with my purchase. I bought this book to read on my own...I was introduced to it by a former instructor. The book is very informative and defintely a must if you're going into the medical field where you will have to deal with patients on a regular basis.
