This chapter highlights the importance of using professional manners and avoiding unprofessional ones. Manners, and the lack thereof, say much about a person and can communicate both favorable and unfavorable characteristics.

This discussion also demonstrates how correcting these tendencies can contribute to professional development while you avoid behavior-related pitfalls during the practicum.
