Imagery and Information Processing: Some Implications for Therapeutic Communication.
King, Corwin P.
This study of the human power to make mental images in the mind, here called "imagery," is studied as a phenomena of empirical psychology. The findings have importance for the process of communication, especially in behavioral modification through psychotherapy. Current research in imagery is reviewed, along with possible applications to therapeutic situations. The viewing of imagined phenomena through the "mind's eye" may occur as remembrances, daydreams, or fantasizing and have the qualities of pictured dreams or even hallucinations. Imagery is used for memory aids, for example, although it seems to function on a nonverbal level. Study of imagery can lead to psychotherapeutic ends in the clinical treatment of disturbed persons.
