Andrew Taylor Still lost confidence and hope in the medical therapies of his day after three of his children died of meningitis in 1864. He became obsessed with finding the cause and the cure for disease. Still developed a philosophy of osteopathy that was holistic, naturalistic, and emphasised health rather than disease. He shunned drugs, and used a manipulative therapy designed to release the healing powers of nature. After years of thought, study, and experimentation, Still opened the American School of Osteopathy in 1892 in Kirksville, Missouri, far removed from the medical centres of traditional medicine. Author Carol Trowbridge tells us about Still's family, the communities he lived in, and the events that shaped him. She helps us understand this eccentric medical pioneer who was never fully accepted by his peers, but whose holistic methods are now considered the cutting edge of medicine today. He leaves a legacy of patient-centred care that impacts providers and patients around the world.

The Heart of Listening
Author: Hugh Milne
Publisher: North Atlantic Books
This deluxe hardcover editions contains both Volume I and II of The Heart of Listening. Milne, a third generation Scottish osteopath, begins by explaining the visionary approach to healing, and how it may be applied to the realm of craniosacral work. He explains the importance of meditation, centering, and the cultivation of heartfulness in the development of compassionate practice. Milne introduces the reader to the story of visionary work—its genesis, evolution, philosophy, and practice—and explains how a grounding in meditation, sensitive touch, and intuitive perception can lead to a remarkable unfoldment in skill development. In the second volume, Milne details the anatomy, physiology, energetics, and techniques that are the essential core of visionary craniosacral work. His particular genius lies in his ability to weave a delicate tapestry of narrative, poetry, and scientific fact into a fascinating and insightful exposition of the visionary healing arts.

The "inner physician" is that part of the psyche that can heal--when one becomes aware of the psycho-emotional issues that come with pain. Dr. Upledger describes his methods through personal accounts such as that from Mary Ellen Clark, the Olympic diver, whom he cured of dizziness.

Experience of Mediated Learning
Author: European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction
Publisher: Emerald Group Publishing
In this volume the authors examine the impact of Feuerstein's theory of Mediated Learning Experience (MLE) on our understanding of the learning, instruction and cognitive modifiability of children, adolescents and young adults. The book begins with a historical essay charting the origins of the theory in Feuerstein's work with holocaust survivors and immigrant children, to the current international acceptance and application of his ideas. The authors discuss key issues such as: the relationship between Feuerstein's theory and the changing agenda of psychological research; developments in the fields of learning potential assessment and their contribution to a more culturally equitable evaluation procedure; the influence of MLE theory on the enhancement of the learning potential of students. The discussion concludes with a consideration of the more problematic aspects of Feuerstein's work and an examination of alternative assessment methods.
