Overview

Dr Walter Holtzapfel draws the connection between bodily processes and the life of the soul, with each affecting the other at different times. He systematically examines the characteristics of the liver, lung, kidney and heart, and applies the knowledge to various psychological disorders and conditions. This book is based on lectures on curative education given by the author in Switzerland and Germany. Although the approach is through the four main human organs, it will be of interest to educators, doctors and nurses working with people with special needs.
