This book provides an up-to-date overview of the biomedical literature in this topic. First, empirical and experimental data are discussed. Methological issues are then considered. Finally, the clinical applications of the negative air ion devices are reported. Written by the two of the most creative voices of psychology and engineering in the New Millenium, The secret in the air is an inspired, provocative and pragmatic exploration that will challenge and transform your outlook on moor disorders. A must-read for students and researchers in psychology and psychiatry. It will also appeal to psychoterapists and mental health workers.
