PRAISE FOR THE BOOK "[Janov's] work is potentially among the most important research in any field over the past century. It could possibly offer more relief from suffering that any other treatment." —Dr. Geoffrey Carr, Professor and Clinical Associate, Simon Fraser University
"Dr. Janov is the discoverer of a remarkable feeling therapy that taps into the feeling side of the brain." —Dr. David A Goodman, Director of the Newport Neuroscience Center
BOOK DESCRIPTION Neuroscience and psychology—two fields which should complement each other in the treatment of mental health problems—have taken widely divergent paths. While neurologists work to find the answer to the human condition in minuscule neurons, psychologists study behavior to the exclusion of the brain itself. Primal Healing at last bridges the gaps between neuroscience and psychology.
Dr. Janov's professional life changed in a single day when he heard an eerie scream welling up from the depths of a young man who was lying on the floor in therapy. In 1970, Dr. Janov published The Primal Scream, a major breakthrough and worldwide bestseller.
The culmination of more than 30 years of research in human psychology, Primal Healing clearly explains how, for true healing to occur, you must access the deepest levels of your brain, where imprinted memories and pain lie, and fully relive the primal experiences that drive your behavior.
Utilizing compelling case studies, Dr. Janov shows how the brain and nervous system can be imprinted by trauma during birth and early childhood, and how these imprinted memories give rise to all manner of physical and mental dysfunction. When you are able to access these subconscious memories, you can liberate yourself and improve your health.
