This is a comprehensive text on psychology as related directly to the physical and manual therapies. It is divided into 3 sections :
Section 1 addresses psychological principles as they relate to illness, injury, and rehabilitation.
Section 2 covers key concepts relevant to psychological care in the physical therapies (e.g., client-practitioner relationships, cognitive-behavioural interventions). The emphasis in the section is on integrating psychological and physical approaches to client care.
Section 3 addresses specific client conditions encountered by those working in the physical and manual therapies.
Chiropractic Journal of Australia, December 2004 "An ideal companion for Waddell's 'Back Pain Revolution' this book provides very useful tools to strengthen these dimensions in one's practice."Back To Top
