Overview

Primal Healing reveals how our mental and physical health are inextricably linked and determined by the brain. For true and lasting change, deep levels of the brain must change physiologically, enabling key structures within the brain to recalibrate to optimal, healthy levels.

For those who have ever sought help for any kind of mental health problem, Primal Healing shows how conventional, word-based psychotherapies such as cognitive, behavioral, and insight, cannot render lasting change, and at best offer only temporary relief from emotional pain. Utilizing compelling case studies, Dr. Janov shows how the brain and nervous system can be imprinted by trauma during birth and early childhood, and how these imprinted memories give rise to all manner of physical and mental dysfunction. When you are able to access these subconscious memories, you can liberate yourself and improve your health.

Dr. Arthur Janov has done more than 30 years of scientific research in neurology and psychotherapy, including studies in neurochemistry, brainwave patterns, vital signs, infrared visions, and immunology.

His 11 books, including the worldwide best-seller The Primal Scream and his recent best-seller The Biology of Love, have been translated into 24 different languages. Janov has served on staff at the Los Angeles Children�s Hospital Psychiatric Department, and is currently director of the Primal Center in Venice, California. His work has also been the subject of a PBS special in the United States and documentaries in Germany, England, France, and Sweden. Janov was recently elected to Claremont Graduate University�s academic hall of fame.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Primal therapy enjoyed a vogue in the United States in the 1970s, when Janov's (director, Primal Ctr., Venice, CA) Primal Scream was a best seller and Beatle John Lennon credited his therapy sessions with the author as the crucial catalyst in unleashing his creativity. However, it was never subjected to clinical studies of its effectiveness (no such studies are listed in Medline for the years 1965-2006), and the current volume is published by a press that specializes in New Age books. Therefore, the first question librarians must ask themselves is whether any current, noncritical book on primal therapy is worthy of purchase. If so, Primal Healing will serve as well as any: written in a popular style, it presents Janov's basic ideas and is illustrated by case histories. Among the questions Janov poses and answers are, "How do feelings evolve?" "What are the three different levels of consciousness?" and "How are memories formed?" Recommended at librarians' discretion. Sarah Boslaugh, BJC HealthCare, St. Louis Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
