Editorial Reviews

Review

“. . . a simple, practical, and useful guide to help doctors and their patients identify the major alternative therapies that will work best for each person.” (Kenneth R. Pelletier, Ph.D., M.D., clinical professor of medicine, University of Arizona and Univers)

“Easy to read and articulate, Your Emotional Type could become an important and clinically useful work.” (Ernest Hartmann, M.D., professor of psychiatry, Tufts University School of Medicine, and author of B)

“A much-needed guide to the fundamental connection between emotions and common physical and mental ailments--and what to do about them.” (Miriam Greenspan, therapist in private practice and author of Healing Through the Dark Emotions)

Your Emotional Type, securely grounded in scientific research affirming the inseparable unity of mind and body, enables readers to understand how their own personalities may make them prone to a wide variety of health conditions, from chronic fatigue to hypertension, from migraine to fibromyalgia. Most helpfully, the authors guide people to the therapies most appropriate to each personality type. The book is empowering, helping us to become active agents in our healing rather than being simply the recipients of ‘cures’ from a medical approach that fails to recognize the uniqueness of individuals.” (Gabor Maté, M.D., author of When The Body Says No: Exploring the Stress-Disease Connection)

Your Emotional Type is a very useful guide for anyone in search of therapies best suited to their bodymind type, their style of handing strong feelings, and the nature of their health problems. In particular, the thin-to-thick boundary scale--a unique window on personality type--offers a valuable framework for helping people choose among the array of complementary and alternative therapies.” (Deane Juhan, author of Job’s Body: A Handbook for Bodywork)

“...an interesting hybrid: a science-based book, back-end loaded with references, that is also self-help and filled with useful resources.” (Integrative Medicine, January 2012)

“There is a ton of resources given so that it would be fairly easy to follow-up and find what is going to work best for you. This is a great handbook that will be useful to anyone working with chronic conditions. Perfect gift for therapists, physicians, body workers, and for people with various conditions.” (New Spirit Journal, December 2011)

“This is a break-through book which heralds the next growth phase in alternative treatment and wellness.” (Anna Jedrzieski, Retailing Insights, December 2011)

“A convincing guide meant to supplement professional medical care” (Betty-Lee Fox, Library Journal, January 2012)

“With very clear and concise language, this book will give all those who read it a running start to find the correct therapy to help heal themselves, thereby saving important and sometimes crucial time.” (Dhara Lemos, Lotus Guide, January 2012)

Your Emotional Type is a wake-up call for those who are stuck in stubborn emotional prisons of fear, anger, resentment, regret, and self-destruction.” (Spirituality & Practice, January 2012)

“In a field that’s filled with self-help and therapy books, Your Emotional Type stands out as a special gift, succinct with great clarity and bringing to those in need a more direct and realistic route to their personal therapeutic salvation.” (The Amazing Kreskin)

Your Emotional Type may be the Rosetta Stone we’ve been waiting for--a code for matching a particular therapy to a particular patient. Micozzi and Jawer . . . have found gold.” (Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Healing Words: The Power of Prayer and the Practice of Medicine and Th)

“By helping patients understand the connection between their personality type, their symptoms, and treatment choices, Jawer and Micozzi help patients become more informed consumers of alternative health care.” (Ilene A. Serlin, psychologist and dance/movement therapist)

“Micozzi has first-hand experience with the connection between emotional type and chronic illness as he suffered from a chronic condition and effectively resolved it with alternative therapies based on his emotional boundary type. If you suffer from a chronic condition, this short book filled with helpful advice is worth a try.” (Kristy Musalo, New Connexion, June 2012)

Your Emotional Type is a valuable contribution to the healing arts and self–care literature. Along with their previous book, The Spiritual Anatomy of Emotion, it deserves a wide readership.” (Daniel Redwood, Health Insights Today, August 2012)

From the Back Cover

HEALTH / WELLNESS

“. . . a simple, practical, and useful guide to help doctors and their patients identify the major alternative therapies that will work best for each person.”
--Kenneth R. Pelletier, Ph.D., M.D., clinical professor of medicine, University of Arizona and University of California--San Francisco, and coauthor of New Medicine

“The book is empowering, helping us to become active agents in our healing rather than being simply the recipients of ‘cures’ from a medical approach that fails to recognize the uniqueness of individuals.”
--Gabor Maté, M.D., author of When the Body Says No

Different people process their feelings in different ways--your emotional style is a fundamental aspect of who you are. It affects more than just your outlook on life; it can affect your well-being as well. Many chronic ailments are not the result of germs or genes but are rooted in our emotional biology. The link between emotional type and health explains why modern medicine--which views treatment as “one size fits all”--often fails to successfully treat chronic pain and illness.

Examining the interplay of emotions, chronic illness and pain, and treatment success, Michael Jawer and Dr. Marc Micozzi reveal how chronic conditions are intrinsically linked to certain emotional types and how these ailments are best treated by choosing a healing therapy in line with your type. Explaining the emotional ties behind the 12 most common chronic illnesses--asthma, allergies, chronic fatigue, depression, fibromyalgia, hypertension, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, post-traumatic stress disorder, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and ulcers--the authors provide an easy assessment survey that allows you to identify your emotional type as well as the ailments to which you are susceptible. Extending this connection between mind and body, they assess 7 alternative healing therapies--acupuncture, hypnosis, biofeedback, meditation, yoga, guided imagery, and relaxation techniques--and indicate which methods work best for each emotional type. Empowering you as a patient to seek out the therapies that will work best for you, this book offers a welcome path to effective pain relief and sustainable health.

MICHAEL A. JAWER is an emotion researcher and expert on “sick building syndrome.” He is the coauthor, with Marc Micozzi, of The Spiritual Anatomy of Emotion. He lives in Vienna, Virginia. MARC S. MICOZZI, M.D., Ph.D., is adjunct professor of physiology and biophysics at Georgetown University School of Medicine. The author, coauthor, and editor of 30 books and textbooks, he lives in Bethesda, Maryland, and Rockport, Massachusetts.

It sounds like a lovely premise: read this book and you'll know what kind of therapy to seek. Unfortunately, there are only two emotional types....thin skinned or thick skinned, and most people fall somewhere in between, rendering the book, in theory at least, relatively useless if you seriously want to know what kind of therapy would be useful. If your interest is more academic, the book is interesting. Just don't view it as a valuable guide.

Authors Jawer and Marcozzi make a fresh, well-reasoned case for how one's "emotional type" (as defined by thick or thin boundaries) can influence not only what kinds of ailments one is susceptible to, but also what therapies are likely to work best. I had already tried some of the highlighted therapies, but not in a directed way to address my particular ailments. This book has helped fit together some pieces of a puzzle so that I can now better target my time and money on approaches that are more likely to be effective for me. I am also now much more aware of how my emotional state manifests itself in physical conditions. I have gotten a copy of this book to give to a friend who is a massage therapist and who does a lot of energy balancing work; she is sure to find it useful not only as a reference for herself but as guidance to her clients. Bravo!

I have read and reread this book and found answers here for many questions as to why one therapy will work for certain patients and not for others. I have shared this book for others also involved in mental health and recommend it highly.

Your Emotional Type, Michael A. Jawer and Marc S. Micozzi, Healing Arts Press, 2011, $14.95
Examining the interplay of emotions, chronic illness and pain, and treatment success, Michael Jawer and Dr. Marc Micozzi reveal how the 12 most common chronic conditions are linked to certain emotional types and how these ailments are best treated by choosing a healing therapy in line with your type. They extend the connection between mind and body by assessing seven alternative healing therapies to indicate which methods work best for your emotional type. You begin by taking a quiz/assessment that helps you determine your emotional boundary type. After you determine if your emotional boundaries are thick, thin or somewhere in between, you consult a chart showing which alternative healing therapies work best for your specific chronic condition. Say you are a thin boundary person suffering from migraines. After consulting the chart, you might determine that biofeedback would be an excellent alternative therapy for you to try. Micozzi has first-hand experience with the connection between emotional type and chronic illness as he suffered from a chronic condition and effectively resolved it with alternative therapies based on his emotional boundary type. If you suffer from a chronic condition, this short book filled with helpful advice is worth a try.

First chapter was promising. After that the book seemed like nonsense. Studies backed up without substantial science. This is how people start believing that physical diseases are curable by positive thoughts alone.
