Counselling in primary health care
Oxford University Press, Apr 1, 1995 - Family & Relationships - 308 pages
Counseling is playing an increasingly important role in primary health care. This book is written particularly for members of the primary health care team to help them clarify what counseling is, which of their patients it may help and in what ways, and who can undertake it. It also contributes to the debate about how to monitor and evaluate a counseling service and how such a service can best fit into team care. The chapter authors include a client of counseling, doctors, nurses, and counselors in the primary health care team, and specialist counselors from other settings.
