Chapter 4 discusses how competence in interpersonal interactions mandates awareness of how the RP affects others, and vice versa, and covers the constructs of empathy, respect, dignity, and multicultural factors, as well as recognition of the effects of stress and the importance of maintaining relationship boundaries in interpersonal interactions. It also touches on how not all health professionals share the same code of conduct or understanding of the ways in which interpersonal factors interact with treatment. Lastly it covers how RPs are often in a position to address the psychological impact of differing perceptions of situations, stressors, interactions and other matters among members of a treatment team comprised of a variety of disciplines, and how those differences may affect the course of treatment.
