Library Journal

Gordon, chair of the advisory council to the National Institutes of Health Office of Alternative Medicine, takes aim at the current abyss between the orthodox biomedical community and alternative practitioners. Advocating a compassionate partnership between the two, he builds a case for collaboration through client studies and persuasive personal testimonies of healthcare victories. Gordon encourages communication and cooperation between these two worlds to address the drawbacks of an illness-oriented medical model burdened with the costs of chronic care. Historical forces of the wellness movement, principles of self-help, and concepts of teamwork are woven into a tapestry he calls the "therapeutic partnership." Gordon issues an important mandate for an integrated and individualized biopsychosocial medicine to meet the future clinical needs of the nation. Written for the medical and allied healthcare communities, this book is recommended for any healthcare provider interested in comprehensive care.Rebecca Cress-Ingebo, Fordham Health Sciences Lib., Wright State Univ., Dayton, Ohio
