Personal and Professional Growth for Health Care Professionals blends aspects of professional development with issues related to personal development. This text includes the use of the multi-stage model of professional development: perception, judgment, motivation, prioritization, decision process, and professional implementation, as well as a discussion on the psychology of professionalism. Topics include: working and communicating across generations, impressions, interprofessional relationships, communication, and professionalism: as a student, a clinician, and at work.

Personal and Professional Growth for Health Care Professionals will help students connect the ideas of professionalism to themselves with relevant case studies and discussion questions. This accessible text provides students with thoughts about personal development which they can apply as they enter the workforce. This is an excellent resource to prepare students with the non-clinical skills to begin a career in health care.
