Essential Skills for Physiotherapists: A Personal and Professional Development Framework explores the vital intrapersonal and interpersonal skills that physiotherapists need for continuous growth. These are rarely taught in academic courses, clinical training, and other physiotherapy textbooks – but they make all the difference for our patients!

Non-clinical, ‘soft’ skills are crucial ingredients for a successful and exciting career in physiotherapy - and are transferable to other walks of life, and other professions. This book introduces the reader to trainable skills such as leadership, wellbeing, career mapping and habit building. Other topics range from building a personal brand, interdisciplinary thinking, communication, networking, and relationship building. The real challenge in our profession is often integrating knowledge and theory to practice - and this book unpacks how to implement these skills in different settings, to support clinical practice and professional development.

This unique resource is based on the curriculum from the successful education and mentoring platform, The Learning Physiotherapist (TLP), which compiles life lessons from a diverse range of world-leading international physiotherapists. Learn from elite professional sport, public and private healthcare practitioners, researchers, and academics from environments such as Liverpool FC, Cirque du Soleil, Isokinetic Medical Group, San Antonio Spurs, NHS, Aspetar and the IRFU.

Learn directly from these renowned industry leaders as they share priceless knowledge, learnings from mistakes and invaluable insights…plus ways to seamlessly weave these into your own practical scenarios.
