This book provides doctors with insights into psychological and relational dynamics to better understand themselves and their patients, deepen their understanding of somatic and psychic dimensions of illness, and give them diagnostic and therapeutic tools to design better treatment procedures for patients. In the first part of the book, the authors explore cognitive, emotional, and somatic strategies that are supportive of doctors' well-being. In the second part, they introduce theoretical knowledge and applicable skills from psychotherapy that can illuminate the complexity of the doctor-patient relationship, broaden doctors' approaches, and upgrade their communicative skills. The third part introduces some of the basic tenets of somatic psychotherapy that can deepen doctors' understanding of symptoms and illness, providing them with richer therapeutic tools and a deeper knowledge of bodily and psychological aspects, interweaving in a variety of medical conditions. This text not only provides a helping hand to both doctors and psychotherapists in designing an amalgamated approach to clinical treatment but also provides doctors with better tools for understanding and managing the intricacies of the doctor-patient relationship.
