Deep Brain StimulationWrestling with Our Inner Angels: Faith, Mental Illness and the Journey to Wholeness
by Nancy Kehoe, Jossey-Bass (2009)

This book offers a compelling, intimate and moving account of how the author brought her background as a psychologist and nun to bear in groups of people with mental illness, exploring the role of faith and spirituality in their treatment—and their lives.

Filled with fascinating stories about her own spiritual journey, it offers insights and new ways of thinking about the role of faith—which most clinicians consider taboo.

Kehoe is a clinical instructor at the Cambridge Health Alliance affiliated with Harvard Medical School and nun in the Society of the Sacred Heart.
