Description:

Lewis Mehl-Madrona examines the foundations of the use of story as a healing modality. Citing case histories that demonstrate the profound power of narrative in healing, the author shows how when we learn to dialogue with disease, we come to understand the power of the "story" we tell about our illness and our possibilities for better health. Mehl-Madrona seeks to restore the pivotal role of the patient's own story in the healing process, pointing the way to a new model of medicine--a health care system that draws its effectiveness from listening to the healing wisdom in the voices of its patients.
