about

This comprehensive resource explains the yogic approach to treating psychiatric disorders that are not covered in Shannahoff-Khalsa’s first book, including the variants of schizophrenia; the ten variants of personality disorders that include borderline, paranoid, and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder; and also autism, Asperger’s, and multimorbidities.

Here, he presents a bounty of disorder-specific, multi-part Kudalini yoga meditation protocols never before published for treating complex psychiatric disorders. In addition to offering a host of techniques, the etiology of each disorder is also carefully explained from a yogic perspective.

Editorial Reviews

There is no one I would rather read on China than Tom Christensen. He has the rare ability to transcend the conventional either/or debates about China and to see the country simultaneously as a power with the potential to disrupt global politics in many negative ways and as a country that the United States must engage as a partner in solving global problems. He also has a deep and much needed understanding of how Chinese domestic politics shape Chinese foreign policy. If you read only one book on China, make it The China Challenge. — International Journal of YogaThe rise of China is one of the prime challenges for American foreign policy. Thomas Christensen uses his first rate credentials both as a scholar and a practitioner to give a clear and compelling answer to this challenge. — John S. March, MD, MPH, Director, Division of Neurosciences Medicine, Duke Clinical Research InstituteTom Christensen has written a book that displays the ideal mix of ''richness, rigor, and relevance.'' Countering naïve neo-conservative and liberal interventionists who seem to think that threats to an adversary's vital interests are all you need to induce compliance, and naïve rationalist liberals who believe economic and institutional engagement will largely contain revisionist preferences, Christensen shows from a careful empirical analysis of Chinese foreign policy how stable coexistence in US-China relations rests on a delicate balance of both deterrence and reassurance. Hopefully future US decision makers will read this book and absorb its message. — The Humanistic PsychologistChristensen is one of the world’s leading China experts, an experienced senior policymaker, and a top-notch international relations theorist. The China Challenge is outstanding, a must-read for anybody interested in China, American foreign policy, or global affairs more generally. — James Leckman, MD, Neison Harris Professor of Child Psychiatry, Psychiatry, Psychology and Pediatrics at Yale, and Director of Research, Yale Child Study CenterEverything you need to know about the sometimes bewildering, always tricky issues generated by the rise of China is here in Tom Christensen's lucid book. China is something new in the world, a rising authoritarian state that is an economic colossus and very nearly a first-rate military power, which is what makes it the most important strategic challenge we''re going to face for the foreseeable future. Christensen doesn't promise that dealing with China will be easy. It won't be. But he is utterly clear-headed, realistic, persuasive, and, perhaps most important, cautiously optimistic, as he resets the terms of the continuing debate. — Euripides Miguel, MD, PhD, Professor, Department of Psychiatry, University of Sao Paolo Medical SchoolDr. Christensen gives us a detailed history and critique of recent Sino-US relations, thoughtful evaluations of the views of other scholars and an insider's view of dealing with China on important issues. His balanced judgments on the difficulties and possibilities of Sino-US relations in the future are sobering but eventually hopeful. Anyone seriously interested in one of the most consequential bilateral relationships that will shape the world''s future needs to read this book. — Alex Jenson (MHMR of Tarrant County)
