Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Neva L Crogan, PhD, APRN, BC (University of Arizona College of Nursing)
Description: Dietetics is a rapidly changing field of practice. Effective communication skills are essential for competent dietetic practice. This the fourth edition of an important and popular communication textbook for dietetic professionals.
Purpose: The purpose is to prepare professionals with the skills necessary to improve their communication skills with patients, clients, employees, and others, thus improving their professional practice. These worthy objectives met with this new edition.
Audience: According to the authors, the book was written for the dietetics professional. However, it also is useful for any professionals interested in improving their communication skills with clients or patients. The authors are credible authorities in the subject matter.
Features: Dietetic professionals face many challenges in working with the average dietetic client of today. This fourth edition reviews the literature on individual, social, and cultural factors that influence behavior change and applies them to dietetic practice. Multiple theories are presented as a basis for communicating healthful changes in food behaviors. The book has 15 chapters, and includes web site addresses where one may find additional information on chapter topics as well as materials to use with clients. An index and instructor's manual are available.
Assessment: Communication skills are very important to the dietetics professional. This fourth edition provides a much needed, up-to-date resource for those involved in providing nutrition counseling. This edition includes review questions, learning objectives and resources for further learning. Self-assessments and additional case studies were added to assist with applying chapter materials. Internet sites provide sources of additional information or materials professionals may use with clients. A much improved resource manual for the dietetics professional.
