About this book

This brief explores how the “person” of the therapist is developed when training and working in medical settings. It highlights important and often unspoken topics such as the personal, professional, cultural, ethical, and competency dilemmas new clinicians regularly face. The brief also addresses how personal experience with illness, death, cultural differences, and stigma may impact professionals in everyday practice.

Topics featured in this Brief include:

  • Helpful tips and tricks for new professionals entering a medical setting for the first time.
  • Working with patients who suffer from chronic and terminal illnesses.
  • Sociocultural norms and values that are often present in a medical setting.
  • A new framework for identifying and treating professional burnout.
  • How to handle ethical situations in medical organizations.

Self of the Therapist in Medical Settings is a must-have resource for clinicians, professionals, supervisors, and faculty working in medical settings.
