In Embodying Life we look at contrasting worldviews and approaches in medicine from historical and clinical perspectives. In particular, the three worlds mythophysiology of Chinese medicine provides a guide to observing living systems and sets the stage for understanding modern systems theory and its clinical application. The Therapeutic Strategy Map and the 4Cs Collaborative Care system offer operative models for cultivating the therapeutic relationship, facilitating self-healing in patients, and framing relationships within multidisciplinary medical interventions.
