This book takes it a step further, emphasizing that even Mind Problems, the more common psychological predicaments, though well below the clinical bar, can affect a person’s thinking, behavior and wellbeing in profoundly negative ways and bring down the structure of harmony and health. The book is intended to educate the public on the importance of overcoming these problems by employing self-help strategies, psychotherapy, and, if needed, taking medications. For those concerned with overvaluing life’s mundane problems, thus trivializing the real medical disorders, there are plenty of thought-provoking evidence throughout the book, to calm their nerves.

C.J. Jos, M.D. is board-certified physician trained in Medicine, Neurology and Psychiatry, and currently a Professor at St Louis University, St Louis and a Medical Director at COMTREA, a large non-profit organization treating the ill children and adults. Dr. Jos is ideally suited to write this book, since during his long professional career, he has witnessed the limitations of Diagnostic Manuals and the intrinsic power of Mind Problems to erupt and disrupt human lives.
