What I particularly like about the book is that the authors have put forward a very positive view. It is mainly concerned with the various forms of physical illness and views these as creative developments which the person produces as a substitute for the deep hurts and traumas of the true selfA" which are too painful to be faced directly and therefore the psychological purpose of the illness is to draw attention to what the person really needs.
