even if discomfort is a common human adventure, many view the ache of others as inner most, proof against language, and, accordingly, basically unknowable. And, but, regardless of the most obvious limits to comprehending another’s inner country, language is all that we've got to translate discomfort from the solitary and unknowable to a phenomenon richly defined in literature, medication, and way of life. with out denying the personal dimensions of soreness, All on your Head deals a completely clean standpoint that considers how soreness can be configured, controlled, defined, or even skilled in deeply relational ways.

Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork in a pediatric soreness medical institution in California, Mara Buchbinder explores how clinicians, adolescent sufferers, and their households make feel of confusing signs and paintings to relieve discomfort. via cautious realization to the language of pain—including narratives, conversations, versions, and metaphors—and targeted research of ways younger ache victims make that means via interactions with others, her e-book finds that even if deepest soreness could be, making feel of it really is profoundly social.
