Professional Behaviors in Athletic Training
Professional Behaviors in Athletic Training is a unique text that focuses on the essentials of effective career development. Professional behavior skills are as critical to the future success of students as cognitive and clinical skills.
This one-of-a-kind book begins by tracing the evolution of athletic training and the hallmarks of true healthcare professionals. The next few chapters address many of the skills that students will require to continue to build their image as healthcare professionals, such as communication, critical thinking, networking, interpersonal skills, and recognition of cultural differences. The book also includes discussions on preparing for a job search, becoming established in a new workplace, and the importance and necessity of lifelong learning.
Inside you will find easy-to-read charts and procedures to improve professional judgment and critical thinking. A table of contents makes it easy to find a specific topic and complements this reference book. An introduction and summary provide a clear indication of the content and philosophy of each chapter. Much of the content is related directly to specific affective competencies in the Health Care Administration and Professional Development and Responsibilities domains of the 1999 Athletic Training Educational Competencies.
Professional Behaviors in Athletic Training is a perfect companion for students just beginning their education or for graduate students ready to embark on their career paths into the professional workplace.
