Synopses & Reviews
Designed for psychologists, psychiatrists, astrologers, and lay people alike, Signs of Mental Illness by Dr. Mitchell E. Gibson, M.D., is a breakthrough in the sciences of psychiatry and astrology that will help people with their mental health for this new millennium.
The author is one of the most well known and highly respected medial doctors in the state of Arizona, where he maintains a successful private practice in psychiatry. Dr. Gibson is a Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology, the American Board of Forensic Medicine, and the American College of Forensic Examiners. Formerly, he was chief of staff at East Valley Camelback Hospital, as well as chief resident in psychiatry at the Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia. With such an illustrious career, why has he written a book that uses astrology, a science that some people severely question? Because it can help people--and because it's the truth.
In Signs of Mental Illness, Dr. Gibson demonstrates new astrological techniques for predicting mental illness, based on his study of more than 400 astrological birth charts and the use of scientific statistical research models. Here is what he has discovered:
-The average person's birth chart contains about three marker aspects of depression
-The birth chart of someone with major depression contains an average of ten such markers
What are these indications? You'll find out in Signs of Mental Illness. Even with no previous astrological experience, you'll learn how to spot the indicators for mental illness through the declinations and multiple planet aspects that form the basis of this pioneering work. To get you started, there is a coupon for a FREE birth chart included with every copy of Signs of Mental Illness.
