Synopsis:
Physical therapists know that their patients are more than just a list of symptoms. They are people first, often with a complex mix of medical and psychiatric circumstances, who may receive a wide range of care from a team of professionals. Keeping this in mind, Psychosocial Elements of Physical Therapy: The Connection of Body to Mind is both a textbook and a clinical resource for physical therapist students and clinicians practicing in any patient population with psychological concerns or disorders.
 
 
Inside, Dr. Hannah Johnson provides an essential introduction of psychosocial concepts, general treatment approaches for culturally sensitive care, and selected classes of mental illness as defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition (DSM-5). A complete review of the current research and evidence base provides students a strong foundation to build their careers on, but can also act as a crash-course in the most recent literature for the busy clinician.
 
 
Features:
  • Clear, concise language and layout for efficient learning
  • Application-based review questions
  • Real world case studies to apply critical thinking skills
  • Evidence-based practical tests and measures
  • Vocabulary terms that facilitate interdisciplinary teamwork
 
 
Psychosocial Elements of Physical Therapy: The Connection of Body to Mind provides physical therapist students and clinicians with an efficient yet comprehensive guide to helping patients with psychological concerns or disorders.
