Man is not just a number, but a unique blend of body, personality and social being. Everyone will become ill at some stago;! of his or her life, because nobody enjoys perfect health. To understand fully the nature of this illness, the doctor should be aware of (i) stress, and the ways in which a human being can respond to it; (ii) the concepts of incompetence and psychosocial life crises; (iii) the postulates of Halliday; and (iv) the importance of good communication with the patient.
