"…a concise, practical no-nonsense guide to providing effective advice and empathetic care in time-limited situations… The book is divided into six sections based on the problems which commonly present to family doctors …[the author] describes strategies to alter behaviour patterns related to: eating, sleeping, smoking and drinking; managing stress, panic and depression; marriages, relationships, children and teens; bad news, violence and grieving and thriving at work."
"[The author’s] recommendations are based on empirically supported theoretical frameworks such as cognitive behavioral, motivational enhancement, solution focused, and problem solving therapies. Two Minute Talks is appropriate for a variety of levels of advisors, including medical students, residents, and practicing physicians who want to add to their "toolkit" for helping patients with psychosocial issues."
—Linda Myerholtz, PhD, in Family Medicine
"Behavioral science clinical interventions are essential if our patients are to achieve their highest level of well-being … Dr. Clabby’s book can serve as an introductory textbook that can help students become comfortable and competent with two-minute "procedures" to improve psychological and behavioral health within the time constraints of clinical medicine."
—Barbara Gastel, MD, in Journal of Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing
"With so many books for students and qualified practitioners to choose from, I would suggest this book would sit well in a school/college of nursing library."
