Skip to 1 minute and 17 seconds Sorry about that So going back to your condition, we have to act quickly and decisively. You must have complete trust and me and everything will work out fine. Now, if you have anymore questions, I probably have a few minutes for you.
Skip to 1 minute and 40 seconds No, no. This is all wrong. You cannot treat a patient like an old washing machine. Stop playing with the phone, listen to what she’s feeling. Also, give more in detail information about the condition and work with her to possible strategies to cope with emotional reactions and to cope with the problem. And besides, you even forgot to tell her what is her problem. So if you think this is the worst clinical consultation you have ever had, well, you’re probably right, and I agree with you. And you’re probably in the right place here, now, because well, this is, this was very bad. Hi, I’m Claudio Gentili And I will be your educator for the course, Introduction to Health Psychology.
Skip to 2 minutes and 29 seconds In this course, we will cover topics like how to do a good clinical consultation and how to break bad news. Exactly, not the way that you have just seen. Also, we are going to learn a lot of other things, because Health psychology is a very wide topic. And we will try to cover how to increase health and how to promote health and to help people to have a healthier life and to avoid risky behaviors. But we also go inside the feelings of a patient who is suffering from somatic illness. And finally, we will also assess the psychological stress in caregivers. Those who are in charge of taking care of sick people.
