The Power to Heal: An Investigation of Healing and the Healing Experience

Harvey, David

 Journalist Harvey surveys psychic healing, primarily in Great Britain. He describes the work of the National Federation of Spiritual Healers and through depictions of the life and work of individual healers past and present provides a history of unorthodox healing (psychic, spiritual, and mediumistic). The individual healers touched on are Rose Dawson, Rose Gladden, Harry Edwards, John Cain, George Chapman, and Edgar Chase. Harvey also presents the results of a survey he conducted of people who had been treated by healers with positive results. The survey asked whether people had benefited from treatment, and if so, how. It probed the circumstances under which any improvement occurred, and the way in which the healing was experienced during the time of treatment. There are chapters discussing how medicine can benefit from healers, a brief and selective survey of research on healing, and a summary of theories of healing. There is an appendix on "Finding a Healer and Learning to Heal." There is a select, briefly-annotated bibliography of 18 books on healing.
