Health professionals need to learn the communication skills that will create collaborative and mutually satisfying relationships with patients. The failure of doctors to relate effectively to patients results in noncompliance, malpractice suits, longer stays in hospitals and other negative outcomes. Interpersonal skills can be easily learned by studying the techniques described by Gordon and Edwards. Using cases, interviews, dialogues, and vignettes, the authors provide effective models or blueprints for health professionals to follow. The skills are generic and improve interpersonal communication throughout the spectrum of medical specializations and services.
Gordon is a psychologist who has pioneered internationally recognized effectiveness training programs widely used by teachers, parents, salesmen, managers, and other professionals. He has published six books that have sold over five million copies in 17 languages. In this work, he has enlisted the expertise of Edwards, a highly respected medical doctor and educator, to provide the necessary insider's view of the health profession. Together they make a convincing case for doctors to develop closer and more collaborative relationships with patients.

Dr. Thomas Gordon addresses the number one concern of parents and teachers today - disciplining children. Drawing on published research findings as well as his own experience as a clinical psychologist, he makes a provocative case against punitive, power-based methods of discipline - which only cause new problems, from rebellion to depression - and advances a workable alternative. He debunks myths about praise and reward systems, too. Some will find it controversial, but parents and teachers frustrated by the failure of "dare to discipline" and "tough love" style approaches will welcome Dr. Gordon's arguments and embrace the alternative he describes.
Gordon discards the notion that adults must be either strict or permissive with children, offering a third approach that results in solutions and agreements that meet the needs of both adult and child. Under its influence, children learn the all-important skills of self-discipline, responsibility, cooperation, and consideration of others. Kids also enjoy a greater self-esteem - essential to positive mental health and scholastic achievement.
Passionate and persuasive, this book will change not only the way you approach disciplining children but very likely the whole texture of your relationship with them - for the better.
