The Consultation in Phytotherapy: The Herbal Practitioner's Approach to the Patient by Peter Conway, 2010.
Written for both herbal medicine students and practitioners, the book challenges readers to reflect on the nature, scope and methods of the consultation in herbal practice. The author asserts that the effective consultation represents a therapeutic act in and of itself, and proposes strategies for maximizing and realizing this therapeutic potential. The book contrasts the herbal consultation with that occurring in conventional medicine and offers rationales, arguments and tools aimed at developing an enhanced capacity to achieve profound results in the herbal clinical encounter.
