Therapist's principles (2)

Principle 2.  Learn from patients.

Try to get information as much as possible from patient's body itself, and certainly from what the patient talks. For this, it is desirable for a therapist to be moderate in asking questions and to be in the side of listening what patients talk.

Let the bowel movement, sleep and appetite be the three general questions, and limit medical explanations, explain only when asked by a patient; do not show off your knowledge.
