Deceits of the Mind and Their Effects on the Body 1st Edition
Use the Amazon App to scan ISBNs and compare prices.
“The interactions between mind-body dynamics and health are complex and unclear, but increasingly research evidence points to significant clinical relevancy for this association. Goldberg presents a compelling argument for reevaluating the traditional medical model of the disease process, refocusing on the relationship of mind-body interactions as a fundamental component of disease, and suggesting that this relationship is more encompassing than the traditional psychosomatic models suggest… This thesis is well developed and organized, and the text is well written, readable, and comprehensible to students and general readers as well as professionals. The author, a practicing psychoanalyst who has written widely in the field, makes original and insightful contributions to the dialogue on the mind/body interaction and its influence on the disease process. The conceptual framework suggested is a useful contribution to the field. Valuable notes.”
—R. L. Jones, Choice
"Thoroughly documented and researched, Deceits of the Mind is also a multifaceted presentation of the dynamic of disease, and most importantly, explicit approaches to presentation and healing of both physical and psychological disorders. It is most refreshing to have this very find addition to the field of holistic healing, written in such a clear and engaging manner. To me the book is invaluable. It will also be a must read for patients and their friends and family."
—Richard Rivner, M.D., medical director, Fryer Research Center, New York
"Dr. Goldberg has written a truly original and insightful book, destined, I feel, to become a classic in the field. Her exploration of the human psyche as it relates particularly to the health of the physical body makes for absolutely enlightened and riveting reading!"
—Ruth Sackman, president, Foundation for Advancement in Cancer Therapy, Ltd. (FACT)
"No writer has done more than Jane Goldberg to further exploration of the largely uncharted territory at the border of mind and body. In Deceits of the Mind she throws brilliant light into this area, and discovers original sytheses of the insights of medical scientists with those of the psychoanalytic theorists. Dr. Goldberg's thinking is original, penetrating, and adventurous without being reckless; she has much to teach both lay people and professionals--of several disciplines. Her writing is of a clarity and vivacity that will enlighten and delight her lay readership and will help analysts to see more clearly what they themselves do and know and think."
—Phyllis Meadow, Ph.D., editor, Journal of Modern Psychoanalysis
