Article Abstract

Because this piece has no abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.

In this issue of The Companion, we are pleased to reprise a classic approach to the delivery of psychotherapy in a primary care setting—Stuart and Lieberman’s The Fifteen Minute Hour.1 Their BATHE method for connecting physicians with the psychosocial contexts of a patient’s illness deserves to be widely read and practiced. Clinicians who regularly BATHE their patients will demonstrate empathy for and clinical memory of the very human situations that influence how health and illness are perceived and how coping skills are utilized.
