The foundational knowledge and practical actions you need to effectively address your patients' emotions--and manage your own emotions Medical schools acknowledge that emotional well-being and clinical outcomes are connected, but the research that should inform emotion management is scattered. Emotion in the Clinical Encounter brings together theory and research on this important topic. In addition, to revealing how emotion processing affects clinician wellness, it links clinician response to patients' affective cues to care outcomes--making this book unique among health provider "burnout books." Emotion in the Clinical Encounter builds your understanding of the science of emotion and delivers practical insights for recognizing, acknowledging, and responding to patients' emotions, as well as your own. It provides in-depth coverage of the evolutionary and social function of emotion, the role of emotion in illness, the culture of medicine and its relationship to emotional management, and the neuroscience of emotion as it pertains to clinical medicine.
