2007 | ISBN: 1855754185 | English | 200 pages | PDF | 1 MB
At the beginning of the 21st century, an integration of the least material element of human beings, namely the psyche or, to be more precise, the psychic apparatus, into medical knowledge and clinical expertise is long overdue.
How do the mind and the body communicate? Could the mind cause diseases? This book answers these questions and proposes a comprehensive approach for doctors and psychotherapists, those who are treating somatic patients whether in hospitals or private practice. It also raises awareness among readers with an interest in new developments and fresh approaches to diseases and patients. The work demonstrates the interrelations between mind and body with reference to various scientific disciplines.
