IBSN: 9781853433061 Categories: , ,


The work of a general practitioner can be highly stressful and the source of much of the stress is often the conflict that arises between the needs of the doctor and those of the patient. A doctor has to face many common but disturbing situations such as dealing with highly distressed people, seductive behaviour and anger in the consultation as well as the demands of relationships with fellow professionals. This book examines and probes the forces that impact on the carer in order to understand and defuse the stress they cause. The author, John Holland, is a counsellor trainer as well as doctor, uses psychotherapeutic understandings to gain insight through the many examples he gives.
