  Outskirts Press Announces the Release of Dr. Patrick Dust’s New Nonfiction Book — Finished Business: A Neuropsychoanalytic Account of Recovery from Complex Trauma, Fibromyalgia, and an Eating Disorder

October 1, 2017 – Denver, CO, and Tucson, AZ – Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing full-service self-publishing and book marketing company—is pleased to announce the release of Finished Business: A Neuropsychoanalytic Account of Recovery from Complex Trauma, Fibromyalgia, and an Eating Disorder. Author Patrick Dust, PhD examines the roots of these conditions and offers a path toward transformational results.

Ever wondered about the connection between psychological and physical illness? Most people sense that the mind and the body don’t exist in separate spheres, that at some deep level they are fused and interrelate constantly in our daily lives. [Finished Business] Finished Business illustrates the mind/body connection through two psychosomatic phenomena—fibromyalgia and eating disorders—and traces the origin of these conditions in one person’s experience of complex childhood trauma. 

Through the lens of neuropsychoanalysis, this book confronts the realities of early abuse, lost love, identity dysregulation, and physical illness. It also forges a means for repair, a healthy autonomy, and recovery.

Dr. Dust’s book consists of four parts. The memoir of Part One opens up wounds from the past and confronts the demons of childhood. Part Two describes a post-therapy period in which the examined life yields the first fruits of a recovery. Part Three engages some of the most exciting, cutting-edge knowledge of the brain available today and connects critical issues concerning trauma and health with a nascent neuroscience of the whole person. Part Four, titled “Afterthoughts,” deals with memory reconsolidation, epigenetics, dissociation, and the creative unconscious.

Finished Business will appeal to those who know the rigors of mind/body challenges, to therapists and researchers, and anyone who has pondered the enigmas of our mesmerizing body/brain/mind existence.
