Larry Benz’s Podcast, Practice Leadership, Welcomes Andrew Guccione as Guest

The incredibly accomplished Andrew Guccione, PT, PhD, DPT, FAPTA, joins Larry Benz, PT, DPT, OCS, MBA, MAPP, the CEO of Confluent Health on this week’s episode of Practice Leadership to discuss developing self-efficacy and the role self-efficacy will have in the future of the physical therapy profession.

Dr. Guccione emphasizes the importance of self-efficacy in achieving good outcomes with patients, using verbal persuasion, and incremental achievement to produce the biological effects that contribute to getting patients back to health.

Looking ahead 30 years to the middle of the century, Dr. Guccione predicts that physical therapists will evolve into providers that look at movement as a behavior, pushing physical therapists to become practitioners that integrate and highlight behavioral health in their everyday practice.

Dr. Guccione is the 41st Mary McMillan Award Winner, Professor and Chair of Department of Rehabilitation Science at George Mason University. He served 10 years as Senior Vice President, Division of Practice and Research, American Physical Therapy Association. He has over 30 peer-reviewed research projects along with several other awards for impactful research.
