Book News Annotation:

Emphasizing the mind-body-emotions-spirit relationship, this unusual textbook for an undergraduate course combines modern research with Eastern and Western healing traditions and insights from the fields of psychoneuroimmunology, complementary and alternative medicine, and Jungian psychology. This seventh edition adds a new chapter on the sociology of stress and new material on topics such as the neuroscience of meditation. The text presents theoretical models of the relationship between stress and disease from pioneering researchers and reviews the ideas of thinkers such as Abraham Maslow, Jesus of Nazareth, Black Elk, and Deepak Chopra. Various coping methodologies are described, such as cognitive restructuring and expressive art therapy. In the last section, separate chapters detail 12 relaxation modalities, including yoga, massage, and tai chi. The book includes personal inventories and journal exercises, plus study questions, key terms, and cases of real people. Chapters are illustrated with color photos, illustrations, and cartoons. The accompanying CD-ROM contains a test bank, instructor's manual, lecture slides, images, and class lesson plans. A one-hour audio CD-ROM of guided relaxation is available free to students. Seaward is affiliated with Paramount Wellness Institute, Boulder, Colorado. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
