By incorporating therapeutic talk into daily practice, family doctors can solve and often prevent many psychological and behavioural problems. The approaches described in this text are designed not only to enhance the therapeutic relationship, but also to make practice more productive and pleasurable. In particular, they can be applied in the context of a standard length consultation, rather than lengthy therapy sessions. Developed over two decades and four editions, the overwhelming consensus is that the strategies described in this book work: patients respond, practitioners save time, and provider-patient relationships become richer. The techniques will certainly increase readers' abilities to recognize and treat common emotional problems. The approach is pragmatic, flexible and easily learned, and it works!
