If the distractions and distortions around you, the jarring colors and sounds, could shake up the healing chemistry of your mind, might your surroundings also have the power to heal you? This is the question Esther Sternberg explores in Healing Spaces, a look at the marvelously rich nexus of mind and body, perception and place. The book shows how a Disney theme park or a Frank Gehry concert hall, a labyrinth or a garden can trigger or reduce stress, induce anxiety or instill peace.

Healing Spaces, Modern Architecture, and the Body brings together cutting-edge scholarship examining the myriad ways that architects, urban planners, medical practitioners, and everyday people have applied modern ideas about health and the body to the spaces in which they live, work, and heal. The book’s contributors explore North American and European understandings of the relationship between physical movement, bodily health, technological innovation, medical concepts, natural environments, and architectural settings from the nineteenth century through the heyday of modernist architectural experimentation in the 1920s and 1930s and onward into the 1970s. Not only does the book focus on how professionals have engaged with the architecture of healing and the body, it also explores how urban dwellers have strategized and modified their living environments themselves to create a kind of vernacular modernist architecture of health in their homes, gardens, and backyards. This new work builds upon a growing interdisciplinary field incorporating the urban humanities, geography, architectural history, the history of medicine, and critical visual studies that reflects our current preoccupation with the body and its corresponding therapeutic culture.

Dr. Vincent L. Perri of Woodbury recently published his seventh book, The Healing Space: Understanding the True Nature of Inner Healing. The book is an essay exploring the relationship between two people in serious unconditional dialogue, and how the space between them can be deepened to facilitate inner healing. The essay is written for practitioners and laypersons who are interested in helping anyone suffering from inner grief and illness. Dr. Perri wrote this extended essay as a follow-up text for practitioners of the healing sciences, and for laypersons interested in developing interpersonal skills in grief and illness counseling. The essay elaborates on the work of Martin Buber, C.G. Jung and D.W. Winnicott to explain the deeper relationship of our interpersonal space, and how it can be accessed to communicate our deeper emotions.

Time and time again the arts have been called on to provide respite and relief from fear, anxiety, and pain in clinical medicinal practices.

Healing Through the Arts for Non-Clinical Practitioners is an essential reference source that examines and describes arts-based interventions and experiences that support the healing process outside of the medical field. Featuring research on topics such as arts-based interventions and the use of writing, theatre, and embroidery as methods of healing, this book is ideally designed for academicians, non-clinical practitioners, educators, artists, and rehabilitation professionals.
