WK4 Mind and Body Discussion

Objective 4: Explain the mind and body connection and how spiritual dimensions of illness and recovery are significant to the same.
The “mind-body” connection, as found in the biopsychosocial model and medically validated in psychosomatic illnesses, has become primary in therapy and academic approaches to physical and mental health. The “mind-body” connection tells us that thoughts, beliefs, and emotions can affect our physical health and conversely our physical state can affect our mental and emotional state also. Any spiritual approach to illness and recovery needs to embrace and include the reality of this relationship in its practices.
This activity shall help you to understand the concept of “psychosomatic” and the “mind-body” connection. You also will recall your own experiences of this perspective and share the same in your discussion.
