Description - Letters From the Clinic by Derek Steinberg
In every field of therapeutic practice a significant amount of time is spent writing letters about and to patients. In this work, Derek Steinberg applies detailed literary and psychological analysis to over 40 letters, highlighting why certain words or phrases were used, how they could have been put better, and builds around them principles and theoretical positions based on narrative therapy, consultative approaches and the pscyhological impact of words and phrases. Using the context of child, adolescent and family psychiatry, while also applicable to all therapeutic work, the book deals with issues such as: explaining clinical conditions and treatments; confirming clinical contracts; conveying difficult advice and painful news; and missed appointments and unpaid bills. Each letter is followed by detailed annotations and discussion. This book should prove a useful tool to all those working in clinical and therapeutic practice.
