Physiotherapy Summary

Physiotherapy: A Psychosocial Approach by Sally French

This contemporary new text draws together contributions from the fields of psychology and sociology and applies them to physiotherapy practice. The authors, many of whom are physiotherapists with a particular expertise in these areas, discuss a wide range of psychosocial issues in the context of the clinical setting. The contents include: inequalities in health, sex, gender, ethnicity and health care; ethics, communication, clinical interviewing, pain and illness; behaviours; stress, health, disability, death, dying and bereavement, and lay beliefs about health and illness. Intended to be informative, analytical and stimulating, every chapter is extensively referenced. This text reflects the changing face of physiotherapy education.
