I have first-hand experience implementing his tools in both the Patient Support Corps (as his undergraduate research apprentice) as well as in my own career. His strategies for critical thinking helped me work through conflicts with colleagues. After using SCOPED at a forked road in my career path, I felt more confident and empowered that my decision was the right thing.
I would recommend this book to any professional seeking more effective, collaborative, and productive relationships with clients as well as to curious individuals who might be seeking guidance on how to think through all of life’s decisions.
The book presents a coordinated framework for client-centered decision-making supported by compelling vignettes from live implementation, easy-to-remember acronyms, and useful checklists to ensure quality and completeness. For example, the Five S’s provide a particularly effective method for understanding the multiple dimensions of any difficult decision. Science figures in, as it should, but not to the exclusion of the other important, human-centered aspects – for example, spiritual and social dimensions, which are too frequently soft-pedaled or altogether airbrushed out of other manuscripts on decision-making.
Belkora is to be commended for sharing techniques and well-considered recommendations in this clear, engaging text. The book is a must-read for any practitioner authentically committed to helping clients, colleagues, and customers make better decisions across multiple practice areas.
I have used these decision tools both for myself and with patients. I have seen first-hand their effectiveness while making stressful and complicated career and medical decisions. I say with enthusiasm that DEAL! and the strategies it emphasizes will be a valuable resource throughout my future healthcare career.
These tools are presented alongside examples and exercises to take these strategies immediately into use for your own personal decisions and to use with family, clients, colleagues, etc.. DEAL! further explains principles for creating a team and/or program to integrate these methods into an already existing business or practice. If you are a professional (physician, social worker, lawyer, financial advisor, etc.) who is looking to create a more client-centered practice or business, this is the book for you.
