Eleanor Criswell: The Mind-Body Connection (excerpt) – Thinking Allowed w/ Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove

NOTE: This is an excerpt from a 30-minute DVD.

One can approach understanding the mind-body connection through many disciplines, such as dance, massage, biofeedback, martial arts, yoga, etc. Eleanor Criswell, Ed.D., psychologist and managing editor of Somatics, points out that this body of traditions suggests enormous, untapped possibilities for mind-body control. She stresses the importance of such control for managing chronic pain and dealing with addiction.

NOTE: This is one of our earliest Thinking Allowed programs, c. 1986.
