From The Critics
Reviewer: Lori R. Solaro, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book contains a collection of 19 classic psychosomatic articles published between 1959 and 1979, each with a prefatory remark from an expert in the field of psychosomatic medicine, chosen by the American Psychosomatic Society Publications Committee.
Purpose: The purpose is to present historically significant articles of psychosomatic medicine that demonstrate the psychosomatic perspective of treating the "whole" patient using knowledge from biological, psychological, social, and behavioral disciplines. The book meets this objective.
Audience: Targeted for a multidisciplinary audience of graduate and medical students, residents, and faculty of psychiatry, psychology, and behavioral sciences, this book is interesting for its historical content and credible authors.
Features: The book includes numerous graphs and tables contained in the articles to demonstrate experimental results. Article references are thorough but dated to the time the articles were originally published.
Assessment: This is an interesting historical review of classic psychosomatic articles, significant for their hypotheses and conclusions and for their experimental designs. The collection reminds the reader that exploring the historical development of psychosomatic medicine uncovers not only knowledge still pertinent today, but also discoveries that led to further investigations. These articles emphasize the significance of understanding psychosomatic medicine as a multidisciplinary and dynamic view of health and illness.
