By J.R. Millenson.
Mind Matters is a textbook of mind-body medicine written for students, practitioners and aficionados of alternative medicine. It 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 and mental aspects of illness.
Mind Matters weaves a fine balance between a scientific approach towards health psychology, and humanistic conceptions of medicine as an art. It presents a rigorous exposition of the theory and practice of health psychology from the standpoint of natural medicine, one in which the causes of illness are set in the wide-angle lens of a multicausal, biopsychosocial orientation.
