MIND MATTERS: PSYCHOLOGICAL MEDICINE IN HOLISTIC PRACTICE is a textbook of mind-body medicine written for students, practitioners & aficionados of alternative medicine. Brings together in one coherent volume practical techniques in psychological medicine -- what Plato called "healing with words" -- for those wishing to work more deeply with the emotional & mental aspects of illness. Balances a scientific approach towards health psychology with humanistic conceptions of medicine as an art. Presents the theory & practice of health psychology from the standpoint of natural medicine, one in which the causes of illness are set in the wide-angled lens of a multicausal, biopsychosocial orientation. In this holistic approach, which draws from both mainstream & alternative sources, personality & lifestyle are important factors in illness which the patient & practitioner can learn to assess & bring into treatment protocols. Includes case histories, & annotated bibliographies of significant source materials for further reading. "It is so nice to find readability & scholarship come together. One is able to get the flavor of history, philosophy & technical science as an integrated message from a thoughtful master." DAVID MOSTOFSKY, BOSTON UNIVERSITY.
