Athletic trainers often find themselves immersed in organizations that can critically influence the way in which they fulfill their professional obligations. The workplace can offer many situations that are challenging, particularly for those athletic trainers who are transitioning into clinical practice. With that in mind, Workplace Concepts for Athletic Trainers provides readers with clear and meaningful information that addresses common concepts and issues that occur in the workplace. The topics selected are a reflection of those covered in the literature as problematic yet identifiable and manageable. Each chapter begins with learning objectives and includes a discussion of the issue itself, how it manifests (sources and antecedents), and strategies and solutions to address the concern. Inside Workplace Concepts for Athletic Trainers, Drs. Stephanie M. Mazerolle and William A. Pitney have infused each chapter with case studies to help readers apply the information presented. The conclusion of each chapter contains a summary, questions for review, and suggested readings to reinforce learning. The recommendations and information presented are designed to improve the workplace culture and climate and provide readers with practical suggestions for dealing with workplace issues. Instructors in educational settings can visit for additional materials to be used for teaching in the classroom. Workplace Concepts for Athletic Trainers is a must-have for any athletic training student transitioning into clinical practice or a clinician seeking help for common issues that occur in the workplace.
