Mind-body medicine - working in partnership with traditional medical practice - uses a large range of psychological, physical, and behavioral treatments in a model of health care that aims to treat the whole human being. It provides highly effective resources for prevention and treatment of a wide spectrum of medical conditions-and for fostering the ultimate goals of health care: truly optimal and lasting physical health, as well as emotional and psychological well-being.
In these 36 revealing lectures, Professor Satterfield offers you a comprehensive overview of the field. You'll look in depth at the anatomical and biological systems through which what is "outside" in the environment gets "inside" to affect our minds and bodies. You'll also examine recent research on subjects ranging from the impact our emotions and psychology have on health to the crucial roles that social, cultural, and behavioral factors play. And you'll learn about effective mind-body treatments for many common medical conditions and diseases. Finally, you'll finish the course with a tool box of ideas and interventions for your personal wellness goals, empowering you to partner more effectively with your medical providers and maximize your own health.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

5 star from a psychologist in training
I am bearing the end of my academic training for a PhD in clinical psychology with training in Health Psychology. This lecture series is a great supplement and review to our training. Dr. Satterfield explains all complex topics fully for the average person to understand and constantly reviews past topics that are relevant. This lecture series is a treasure trove of knowledge. However, if you are looking for self-help, (a) this covers a wide range of topics that may not be relevant for you and (b) this includes very few exercises.

Detailed, balanced, and humane
Any additional comments?
Truly comprehensive and fascinating set of lectures. Dr. Satterfield covers the many ways in which the mind and body interact and impact health, covering a variety of topics (from culture and socio-economic factors in health, to genetics, to mental health, to chronic illness, to medical training). He is careful to point out what we don't know, what current studies suggest, and where the research is going. He underscores where we have fact-based treatments and where additional information needs to be found. And he is always empathetic and humane, encouraging a broader view of patients and an open-minded approach to medicine (especially as we learn more). A wonderful set of lectures that would be enlightening to any listener.

Informative, compelling, thought-provoking
Would you listen to Mind-Body Medicine again? Why?
There is so much to take in, I have listened to some lectures more than once. It is great to have the written materials to go with it as they provide the reference details for studies, questionnaires and research mentioned.
