Customer Review

on August 2, 2011
Periodically I am asked treat a patient who has been unresponsive to cognitive behavioral and or psychodynamic psychotherapy as well as psychopharmacologic interventions by medical specialists.
In these cases I explore spiritual dimensions of the patients life. At times, when clinically appropriate, I have suggested that patients consult with clergy to experiment with prayer as an adjunct to traditonal mental health treatment. Often times these patients ask " why would I pray?"
I have responded with a statement such as "It may help your brain".
Now, I suggest they read Newberg and Waldmans book "HOW GOD CHANGES YOUR BRAIN".
Chronically depressesd, demoralized, and hopeless patients have at times been struck by the scientific evidence of the effects of prayer on brain functioning.
I highly recommend this book as bibliotherapy for that subgroup of treatment resistant patients.
