Integrative Rehabilitation Practice: The Foundations of Whole-Person Care for Health Professionals (Paperback)
This edited collection is the first complete guide for rehabilitation professionals seeking to engage a whole-person, biopsychosocial, and mind-body medicine integrated approach to care. Drawing on the foundations of integrative medicine, Integrative Rehabilitation Practice (IRP) goes beyond the treatment of symptoms to explore multiple levels, roots, and possible contributing factors to individual's health experience. IRP acknowledges the complex inseparability of biological, behavioral, psychosocial, spiritual, and environmental influences.
The book covers both the theoretical foundations of IRP and applications to practice in the fields of physical therapy, occupational therapy, yoga therapy, speech and language therapy, and many other professions.
Featuring contributions from Matthew J. Taylor, Marlysa Sullivan, Andra DeVoght and other professionals, case studies, storytelling, and reflective exercises, this cross-disciplinary clinical training guide is essential reading for all rehabilitation professionals, as well as others interested in advancing whole-person care.
