Mind Matters Psychological Medicine in Holistic Practice

Mind Matters Psychological Medicine in Holistic Practice

Mind Matters has been written to educate holistic practitioners in the role of psychological medicine. It traces the historical and psychological background of different medical models, discusses the principal concepts of modern psychology (the concept of mind, Freud and psychoanalysis, behaviour therapy, cognitive and humanistic psychology) and considers the psychobiology of the stress response and its influence on health and disease, drawing on human and animal observation and research. The chapter on behavioural therapy alone will significantly assist a practitioner in going beyond the simplicities of advising a patient what is good for them, sitting back and then wondering why such simple advice seems to be so hard to follow. The book further covers methods of managing stress and pain (stress management, relaxation, meditation, yoga etc.), considers the prevalent models of counselling, the latest thinking in psychosomatics, the language of disease, and the patient-practitioner relationship, ending with a number of case studies in psychological medicine.
