One of the most exciting medical developments during the past thirty years has been the rebirth of family medicine as a dynamic specialty. In the face of ever-widening definitions of health, the family physician has been challenged to integrate the physical, emotional, and social concepts of modern medicine into traditional medical services. Invariably, in establishing a mutual understanding between doctor and patient, the doctor's emotions come into play. 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. The authors come from a variety of disciplines--psychiatry, clinical psychology, family medicine, and family therapy.

Editorial Reviews

?The book is important because it raises questions that demand attention if we are to continue as an effective profession. New burdens on the practice of medicine require heightened attention to the emotional lives of physicians; without it, we will have a bunch of disillusioned colleagues. Our work is too important to let this happen. Some might say that this is "soft" stuff and an inappropriate concern. Soft, yes. But it is important and real intellect is necessary to solve these difficulties. It is where we all live.?-Annals of Internal Medicine
