Behavioral Medicine

Monday, July 6th, 2009


This is a rapidly growing therapeutic system which is founded upon the ever increasing amount of scientific evidence — technically called Psychoneuroimmunology — that the ways in which people behave, think and feel, have both subtle and profound effects on the body. Thus things like negative thoughts and feelings may themselves be a source of illness. The best known of these, and the most highly researched, is emotional stress as a cause or at least a contributing factor to disease. So, therapists working with this model employ an array of stress reduction techniques to help people with painful and/or serious illnesses, as well as working on negative thoughts and feelings to prevent the development or progression of illnesses, and to restore wellness.
