Overview

This book is a how-to manual for incorporating psychotherapy into the daily practice of primary care medicine. In the universe of primary care patients, many, if not all, have a behavioral component as part and parcel of their visit to a physician. Successfully recognizing and addressing these issues in a time-effective manner will benefit the patient while at the same time increasing the satisfaction of the caregiver.

For family physicians and general internists and other providers of primary health care services such as pediatricians, college health physicians, emergency physicians, nurse practitioners, etc. as well as specialists in non-primary care fields.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"From reviews of the first edition: This is a book that the primary care physician, resident, or medical student will want to read to learn how to incorporate a more holistic approach to care in every patient they encounter. . . . The Fifteen Minute Hour offers a useful technology in a concise little package; it can be read in a few hours, and the payoff for the time investment is substantial."

Journal of the American Medical Association

"Provides excellent practical suggestions for primary care physicians interested in the overall well-being of their patients."
