A serious illness can be devastating for the patient and family members alike. The reader of this book will learn little known but amazingly effective techniques from the newly emerging field of energy psychology. These techniques are easily learned and are designed to quickly reduce or eliminate the anxiety, trauma, sadness and emotional hurt that typically accompany a serious illness. Dr. Yarbrough also offers insight and advice, drawing from both his professional training and his own struggle with ALS [Lou Gehrig's disease], a life threatening illness. This book is appropriate for both family members and patients who are dealing with a serious illness. It is also appropriate for mental health professionals who wish to integrate energy psychology techniques into their current treatments.
