Few doctors have undergone formal training in interpersonal skills, and even fewer are aware of the complex factors that influence their own feelings and emotional responses and of the messages they convey to their patients during every professional consultation. 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.
