Social Psychology and Patient Management
This chapter starts out with a brief account of the major theoretic orientations in psychology, leading to a description of the social-psychologic perspective of human behavior. Then, some studies of the dentist-patient relationship grounded in this perspective will be reviewed, followed by the original report of a major Australian study conducted by the author. Throughout, the implications of this literature on patient management are considered.
