Overview

Beginning with an evolutionary history of the relationship between man and his environment, Nature-Guided Therapy takes us on a cross-cultural journey into traditional healing disciplines, such as ethno-medicine, sociobiology, and anthropology. By examining clinical data, empirical scientific investigations, and anecdotal accounts, Dr. George Burns helps point the way to healing benefits of a balanced relationship with the environment. Case histories and step by step procedures for utilizing nature-guided strategies are also presented. Designed as an immensely practical guide for clinicians, this volume contains over 80 therapeutic exercises and a variety of nature-based strategies to help augment clinical skills regardless of one's theoretical orientation. Also included is the author's Sensual Awareness Inventory to help access the client's experiences that may facilitate relaxation, happiness, and wellness. This book provides a fascinating read that can expand our views, challenge our therapeutic paradigms, broaden our clinical practice, and provide simple yet pragmatic treatment interventions.

Incl. sensual awareness inventory; sensate focusing; nature- based assignments; ecotherapy for relaxation & comfort.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Presents an alternative psychotherapy treatment which sees a person not as an independent psychic entity but rather as an interactive element of the environment. The author combines evidence from cross- cultural sources and experimental evidence of science to demonstrate how a direct nature-mind-body connection can be utilized both practically and therapeutically. Distributed by Taylor & Francis. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
