Joseph Barber, PhD, is an award-winning author on the topic of pain management, and a former President of the Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis. One of the most prominent trends in the field of health and wellness is the growing awareness of the mind-body approach. However, along with the enthusiasm we are sometimes led to hasty conclusions and broad generalizations that sometimes lead to disappointment and disinterest in the field. In his provocative, challenging and often amusing presentation, Dr. Barber looks at controversial claims made in the mind-body field. He separates the fads and fallacies from a scientifically supported understanding of powers of the mind.
