Abstract:

Just as there are no diseases that are purely mental, there are no disease that are purely physical. The mental process can change physical aspects of disease and therefore, the use of visualization, or imagery, is now finding increasing use in all branches of medicine and psychotherapy. This book supplies methods, practical techniques and applications to increase the effectiveness of any health care. Scientific evidence and theories to support the uses of visualization are outlined as well as its practical applications in the fields of psychotherapy and health care. The uses of visualization in stress related and other diseases are emphasized along with the specific uses of imagery in specific health care disciplines. The information is directed to all fields of the health care profession including nursing, physical therapy, counseling, occupational therapy and rehabilitation. -- from Book Jacket.
