Abstract:

"This popular study of 'psychological healing' treats topics ranging from religious revivalism and magical healing to contemporary psychotherapies, from the role of the shaman in nonindustrialized societies to the traditional mental hospital. Jerome and Julia Frank contend that these therapies share common elements that improve the 'morale' of sufferers. And in combating the 'demoralizing meaning' that people attach to their experiences, the authors argue, many therapies are surprisingly similar to rhetoric (the art of persuasion) and to hermeneutics (the study of meanings)"--Provided by publisher.
