Healing and the Mind with Bill Moyers. Resource Materials.
Grippo, Lois; Kelso, Richard
This high school resource package for the public television series "Healing and the Mind with Bill Moyers" includes: (1) a teacher's guide that provides complete lesson plans for each program in the series; (2) a glossary that features definitions of the terms used in the series; (3) a bibliography containing books of interest to both teachers and students; (4) a resources section that provides a list of journals, teacher training workshops, and organizations that can offer more information on the topics presented in the series; and (5) student cards that can be duplicated and distributed to students and are designed to give additional information on a variety of subjects related to the programs. The first episode, "The Mystery of Chi," explores traditional Chinese medicine and its fusion with Western practices in modern China. The science of mind-body medicine is the subject of "The Mind Body Connection," which examines current scientific research in the field. The ways in which people are using Eastern meditation and group psychotherapy to improve the healing capacities within their bodies are explored in "Healing From Within.""The Art of Healing" examines how hospitals are instituting new models of medical care that can help patients become active participants in their own healing. The final program in the series, "Wounded Healers," visits Commonweal, a health education facility in northern California where people with cancer help each other to heal even though a cure may be impossible.
