If you've ever blushed, you know how easily your skin reflects your emotions. For those with persistent skin problems, this book may bring welcome relief. The authorsGrossbart is a clinical psychologist and Sherman a medical science writerapply ""a principle both ancient and often forgotten: The mind and body are one.'' In addition to suggesting a visit to a dermatologist, they recommend a combination of techniques, including relaxation, imaging, hypnosis and psychotherapy, to help readers understand hidden conflicts that may cause or intensify their skin problems. They also illuminate the complex role that long-term skin problems, such as herpes, warts or psoriasis, play in the lives of those afflicted. This should be required reading for anyone suffering with a skin problem. The authors do an excellent job translating psychological jargon. (April)
