Psychologically Informed Physiotherapy E Book Book Excerpt:

Psychologically Informed Physiotherapy is a key new textbook for those who need a trusted and comprehensive resource to guide them in applying psychosocial perspectives to their physiotherapy practice. The first of its kind, this textbook brings together an international and interdisciplinary team of leading experts in the field. Together they present an evidence-based range of ideas and concepts around the psychologically informed practice framework, bringing psychosocial aspects of physiotherapy to the fore alongside the established biomedical model. By applying these aspects to screening, exploration and triaging, physiotherapists are better able to identify the origins of pain and barriers to rehabilitation; and so are more likely to achieve consistently good clinical outcomes for their patients. Throughout, clinical case studies ensure that the theory is then grounded in a variety of practical scenarios after which some reflective exercises and clinically relevant scenarios reinforce learning and understanding. Chapters on: Psychology of professional identity in health care The biopsychosocial model Screening for red flags Adapting interactions with others to form empowering relationships and influence behavioural change Neuro-immune-endocrine interactions and clinical practice in stress, pain and recovery Care of the anxious patient through cognitive and person-centred strategies Alternative and evolving models of practice, including the clinical flag system The psychology of the athlete from the physiotherapist’s perspective Using counselling and psychological strategies within physiotherapy Making evidence-based decisions and measuring effectiveness in practice Using psychological interventions as a student or new graduate First textbook of its kind for physiotherapists Ideal confidence booster for both students and practitioners new to the subject Illustrates the role social factors have on thoughts, emotions and behaviour in patients as well as the neurobiological manifestations of social stressors Presents key, evidence-based concepts from leading international academics, clinicians and researchers in the field and across a range of health professions, including counselling and psychology
