Body and Its Pain

Body and Its Pain


Usually ships within 6 days


Physical pain may be, in many cases, considered as a psychic symptom, in the same way as anxiety, depression and obsession are. This is the main thesis of this work which demonstrates, with the help of many clinical case studies, that chronic pain (for which tests reveal no physical cause) always has its origin in a childhood which is seriously lacking in affection. The book presents a fascinating theoretical description of pain, with particular reference to Freud's ideas on the subject, and a detailed account of the treatment by analytical psychotherapy of patients suffering from chronic pain.
