It is important for health workers to be effective and confident in their daily communications with clients/patients in order to develop therapeutic relationships. For new students, this can be a particularly daunting task as often this confidence is built on personal experience. This book provides examples of the type of clinical experience students are likely to have on their student placements: it offers a theoretical framework for them to understand and learn from these interchanges. The book illustrates three main theoretical approaches taught to students: psychodynamic, person–centred and behavioural. The book takes a life span approach, covering the care of the child, adolescent, adult and elderly person, including mental health issues. Each chapter recounts a student′s experience of working with a particular client group, enabling the reader to identify with the personal account and relate their own experience to the theoretical approaches under consideration. The reader is encouraged to reflect on the value of each of the theoretical approaches, thereby incresing effectiveness in communicating with patients.
