Description:

This book is based on the belief that an understanding of the psychococial aspects of health care optimizes therapeutic outcomes. Comprehensive in scope, Drench addresses a variety of psychosocial topics involving individuals affected by pathology, impairment, functional limitation and/or disability. It addresses very real issues in today' s health care environment, acknowledging time as well as other constraints, and describes recommended roles and intervention strategies for care providers. It is intended for students and professionals within all health care professions.
