Summary

Summary

In this volume, Dr. Ruesch develops the challenging idea that communication is the basic medium of mental healing. If abnormal behavior frequently is the result of disturbed communication, the remedial measures, both verbal and nonverbal, aim at restoring a gratifying exchange between people. Dr. Ruesch discusses the communicative approaches known in psychiatry--the psychotherapeutic procedures used by professionals and also the informal ways in which family and friends help each other.
