The Relationship Between Empathic Dentist Behavior and Children's Cooperation.
Stave, Jonathan A.
Journal of Dental Education, v47 n8 p555-57 Aug 1983
A study confirmed the dual hypotheses that the more empathic behavior a dental student showed, the greater the cooperation of children patients, and the more often the patients' verbal behavior is dentist-directed rather than self-directed. It is suggested that training in more socially sensitive behavior would enhance patient care. (MSE)
