- patient safety
The concepts described in this book are scientifically based and have withstood more than 40 years of scrutiny and scientific inquiry. They were first used as a clinical model to help patients help themselves, and indeed are still used clinically. The originator of the concepts, Dr. Taibi Kahler, is an internationally recognized clinical psychologist who was awarded the 1977 Eric Berne Memorial Scientific Award for the clinical application of a discovery he made in 1971. That discovery enabled clinicians to shorten significantly the treatment time of patients by reducing their resistance as a result of miscommunication between their doctors and themselves.
