About this title


The authors - a psychologist and a medical doctor - impart in this accessible volume a framework for examining the aspects of the practitioner-patient relationship and interactions that give rise to a sense of the "difficult" in healthcare. Drawing on psychodynamic theory, they elucidate the features of transference, defenses, and the working alliance that are relevant to physicians and other healthcare practitioners who find patients' emotional and interpersonal problems impacting medical treatment or underlying presenting complaints of somatic dysfunction. Ways of improving the collaboration between doctor and patient and thereby maximizing compliance with medical regimens are examined. Each chapter contains highlighted suggestions for the practical application of the theory to the physician's private practice.
