Dr. Carol Davis, along with contributions from three of today's leaders, has written this fourth edition to assist health care professionals in learning about themselves. Patient Practitioner Interaction is filled with information designed to help improve personal interaction and communication skills, specifically when dealing with difficult circumstances. Students and professionals are instructed on the finer points of how to learn about the patients with whom they will come in contact as well as the challenges of interacting with therapeutic presence in the ever-changing world of health care under demanding circumstances.

Patient Practitioner Interaction, Fourth Edition offers students and professionals a chance to explore self-awareness and how their communication patterns and values were originally developed.

The updated fourth edition of Patient Practitioner Interaction, by Dr. Carol Davis, will guide health care professionals to promote the healing process in patients and their loved ones through sensitivity and improved communication. This renowned text is a proven essential and belongs on the bookshelf and in the minds of every physical therapy student and health care professional.
