Where Have All the Healers Gone Book Description:

Doctor Luke Van Orden has worked in several areas of both clinical medicine and basic medical science. He considers himself a psychotherapist and a “wounded healer”, having had to struggle with his own demons in order to become able to help others. Through his formative years he became disillusioned about the ways that doctors in training become emotionally hardened. He then found that psychiatric training largely failed to produce healers who were emotionally healthy themselves. As medicine became more commercialized he rebelled at the depersonalization of “services” provided to “medical customers.” Where Have All the Healers Gone? tells the story about his own personal growth and his fascinating experiences with patients, many of whom had been badly or unethically treated. Finally, he shares his frustrating experiences with modern medicine as an impersonal corporate business.
