Edward Bach's System of Diagnosis and Therapy - Boris C Rodríguez

About the book

Edward Bach stands in the great tradition of brilliant physicians who became increasingly concerned with psychology. His dedication to healing states of mind, rather than treating disease surgically, was informed by revolutionary ideas about medicine. His work brings us closer to a plan, whose scope is not yet fully known, in which thirty-eight flower essences act as catalysts in a wider therapeutic process. Boris Rodriquez adopts and defends Bach's discoveries as a diagnostic and therapeutic system and, with true originality and sympathy, he demonstrates how it can share a common language of standard classification systems - such as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manuals produced by the American Psychiatric Association. 'One need not be a follower of either Dr Bach's or Professor Boris Rodriquez's approach to therapy to appreciate the clinical sensitivity and depth of insight which they bring to the study of personality psychopathology. This should be a useful reference work for both open-minded clinicians and early students in training.' Dr Theodore Millon, The DSM Diagnostic System, Professor Emeritus, Harvard Medical School.
