  Title A model for learning to understand and communicate the philosophy of chiropractic: Using the 7 habits of highly effective people
Journal J Chiropr Humanit. 2005 ;12():Online access only p 38-44
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes Background: From the beginning, communicating the philosophy of chiropractic has created turmoil within the profession, caused debate over its practicality, and sometimes been discarded as useless. A search began for a model to create avenues of understanding and communication. Other professionals have used Covey’s 7 Habits as a model for success in communicating their principles and we felt that the chiropractic profession could make similar attempts. We selected Steven R. Covey’s book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Covey’s for its concepts and applied them to strategies for use by chiropractic educators or philosophy instructors.

Discussion: This paper describes a new model of communication by synthesizing the 7 Habits of Covey with the works of Stephenson in the Chiropractic Textbook. This model uses principled perceptions to illustrate a philosophical value for clinical practice and educational experience, so it can be more easily heard and understood by a wider audience.

Conclusion: The authors believe that the philosophy of chiropractic is as vital to the profession as is the science and the art. The authors suggest that using Covey’s 7 Habits as a model is useful, practical, and worthy for doctors of chiropractic to consider as another avenue for dialogue, advancing the philosophy of chiropractic, and serving as a platform for learning to better understand and communicate the philosophy of chiropractic.
