Book: Learning about emotions in illness

April 11th, 2014

If you have an interest in medical education or plan to do Balint work with medical students, then this book will offer rich information.

Quote from the flyer from publisher Routledge:

“In this book, Peter Shoenberg, Jessica Yakeley, and their contributors who include students and teachers, discuss two different teaching approaches developed at University College London to help medical students understand the role of emotions in illness, communicate more effectively, and gain a deeper understanding of the doctor patient relationship. The benefits of Wolf and Treadgold’s Student Psychotherapy Scheme are considered alongside Shoenberg and Suckling’s short term student Balint discussion group scheme to provide clear guidance about how psychotherapeutic understanding can be used to inform medical education, with positive results.”
