The interest of the research work has been primarily on un covering the psychological and emotional factors that lead to the development of asthmatic disorder.

Foreword

Health is undoubtedly, an indispensable quality in human being. It has been described as soil form which the finest flowers grow. In order to enjoy life one needs to be healthy. People who are not healthy are called sick. They can not perform well and meet the various demands of life. Health is important for a person individually as well as socially. In order to be a productive member of society, we need an alert mind and an active body. The field of health psychology deals with psychological factors which are important in maintaining and fostering health and well being. Also, it explores the factors which lead to the condition of illness. This field has become very important in recent years. It has become increasingly clear that the life style or our ways of thinking and behaving are contributing to the health status of the people.

The present research work which has been presented in the form of book entitled “ Psychosomatic Correlates of Asthma” was done on author’ own on male and female asthmatic patients in terms of psychosomatic manifestations.

I give my best wishes to Dr. Manoj Kumar Chauhan for his valuable work which is useful to the research scholars and scientists studying in the field of clinical psychological as well as medical sciences.

Traditionally, the medical profession has been concerned with physical illness and has concentrated research efforts on understanding and controlling the organic factors in disease. In Psychopathology, on the other hand, interest has centered primarily on uncovering the psychological and emotional factors that lead to the development of mental disorders. But, today, we realize that both of these approaches are limited; although an illness may be primarily physical or psychological, it is always a disorder of the whole person – not just of the lungs or psyche.

Actually, we consider that the physical and psychological both the factors are involved in the occurrences of any psychological disease. It shows the view that psychological being and biological being are not separate. In short, the individual is a psychobiological unit in continual interaction with the environment. And this is also the emerging point of the concept of the term “psychosomatic” which is referred to those physical illnesses which are primarily caused by psychological reasons rather than organic ones. Asthma is also considered to be a psychosomatic disorder as it appear in a great number of cases triggering through the psychological and emotional reasons and the fruitless effects of psychotherapy in the interventions of asthmatic patients even indicates the psychological basis of this disease.

The Ex-Post Facto investigation on “Psychosomatic Correlates of Asthma” includes all possible quarries under the factorial settings of such complicated variables. The book deserves to be read by research students and scientists studying the relationship of psychosomatic diseases with the emotional behavior. The author deserves our hearty congratulations.
