“Throughout the text, Bakal weaves the scientific evidence for a gamut of mind-body conditions and constructs it into a tapestry of facts illustrating the importance of somatic awareness on health.”

“This excellent book offers a sophisticated, clinically oriented look at the mind-body relationship. Bakal succeeds in usefully defining somatic awareness, and convincingly demonstrates the importance of the topic. This book could have a significant effect on psychological and medical practice.”

—Charles Swencionis, PhD, Albert Einstein College of Medicine

“At long last, a scholarly book about somatic awareness has been written by a distinguished clinician and researcher. Minding the Body is comprehensive, spanning conventional psychology to energy cardiology. It should be required reading for students in clinical and health psychology, medicine, and nursing, and for all professionals using techniques that involve somatic awareness.”

—Gary E. R. Schwartz, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Medicine, Neurology, and Psychiatry, University of Arizona
