Summary

This book introduces readers to the many facets of body/mind psychology such as its history and its basis in physiological processes; the framework of its theories and models; its clinical application in counseling, psychotherapy, and the treatment of psychosomatic disorders; and its growing impact on our understanding of healing, communication, and conscious living.

From Freud, Reich, and Lowen to holography and Tibetan Buddhist theories of madness; from Perls, Laslow, and self-actualization to acupressure, Rolfing, and insight meditation; Marrone provides a challenging and sophisticated synthesis of highly diverse and powerful ideas in an exciting and readable style.

“This brief and delightful introduction to body psychotherapy introduces the reader to its many facets with unusual clarity and insightfulness.” — European Association for Body Psychotherapy Newsletter

"I am impressed by the unusual synthesis of traditional psychological perspectives with the therapeutic approaches the author employs." -- Richard D. Mann, University of Michigan
"I learned a great deal from this work. Marrone synthesizes, in a very readable and compelling way, a great deal of information about the ways in which the mind/body dualism has been challenged in the various modern traditions of psychology. He both explores the theoretical underpinnings of these developments and links them to actual practical developments in the therapeutic community that have emerged as a result of these insights. He does an excellent job of making respectable and appealing forms of therapy that more traditional psychologists might regard with distaste and suspicion." -- Howard Eilberg-Schwartz, Temple University

Robert Marrone is Professor of Psychology at California State University, Sacramento.
