Doctors and Their Feelings : A Pharmacology of Medical Caring Hardback
One of the most exciting medical developments during the past thirty years has been the rebirth of family medicine as a dynamic specialty.
In the face of ever-widening definitions of health, the family physician has been challenged to integrate the physical, emotional, and social concepts of modern medicine into traditional medical services.
Invariably, in establishing a mutual understanding between doctor and patient, the doctor's emotions come into play. This book addresses the needs of family and other physicians to better understand their emotions, enhance their self-awareness, improve their communications skills, and apply these skills more effectively within the constraints of clinical practice and teaching.
A multi-disciplinary approach common to the practice of family medicine is used.
The authors come from a variety of disciplines--psychiatry, clinical psychology, family medicine, and family therapy.
