Editorial Reviews

Ilene Cooper
And you thought it was all in your head. The Hendrickses, who have developed a method of body-centered therapy, are here to tell readers that feelings live in our bodies and that people need to learn to claim those feelings by paying attention to their visceral sensations. Peppered with anecdotal case studies, the book starts out strong as the authors reiterate what many therapy patients already know--great insights don't necessarily change behavior. The Hendrickses then offer nine strategies, including breathing and movement exercises, for focusing on feelings that, once understood, can make possible radical change in one's life. Like most self-help books, this one will only benefit those readers who actually do the exercises. Though a personal trainer would seem especially useful in following this program, there's enough new and interesting material here to at least get people started on tuning in to their bodies' frequencies. This will be popular in most self-help collections.
