The book addresses all items related to wellness in the Normative Model of Physical Therapist Professional Education: Version 2004, the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice, and APTA's Education Strategic Plan. The text consists of foundational knowledge, theoretical models, empirical research and application of material to physical therapy practice. Evidence-based practice is emphasized through a mixed approach of formalist and reader-response. An important text for all physical therapy students!
