This is a highly practical handbook aimed specifically at medical and health care professionals. The book begins with an overview of the main issues of counselling and communication in health care professions, and looks at the importance of self–care from both a personal and organizational perspective. Basic counselling and communication skills are then discussed, followed by their application to specialised settings including sexual health, child health, infertility and rehabilitation. The book also includes an examination of the use of narratives and the Myers–Briggs.
