Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anna Lou Goldblatt, MA, PT (Medical College of Ohio School of Allied Health)
Description: The book is divided into four broad sections that cover healthcare practice, illness and disability, communication, and psychosocial issues specific to physical therapy. It is the second edition; the first was published in 1992.
Purpose: This book is intended to be informative, analytical, and stimulating regarding psychosocial issues in physical therapy. It discusses issues that all practitioners need to be aware of in today's rapidly changing healthcare environment. It compares several approaches for each topic and provides many references for those who wish to study a topic in greater depth.
Audience: It is written for students and practitioners of physical therapy, but it is appropriate for other healthcare students and professionals as well. The author is a physical therapist who holds advanced degrees in psychology and sociology.
Features: Illustrations are limited to a few tables and graphs. The references are current, pertinent, and in depth.
Assessment: This book reviews many theories and approaches for each topic, but leaves the readers to find their own paths. Therefore, it is well suited to those who like to consider many different approaches superficially. For those who prefer a more in-depth review, the references are quite extensive, facilitating independent study. The book is a good reference for students or practitioners of physical therapy because it deals with issues covering the various roles of the physical therapist. New information in this edition discusses the attitude of health professionals toward disabled people, learning difficulties, and sexuality.

A sampling of the topics: sex, gender, ethnicity and health care; ethics; clinical interviewing; pain and illness behavior; lay beliefs about health and illness; stress; sport psychology; addiction; the placebo effect; death, dying, and bereavement; cognitive and perceptual defects.
