Summary/Abstract: This review concerns questions of Doina Cosman’s book entitled „Psihologie medicalǎ” (Medical psychology). The main motive is the communication within the curing process and the recovery. The „communication” here does not mean „informing” or „report”, rather the original meaning of „communio”. It is a challenge when the doctors and the patient participate actively in the healing. Therefore, the communication analysis is important – what kind of communication is there between the doctor and patient, the patient and its illness, the patient and its milieu. The author recommends this book for people who are not medical researchers, but who know themselves to be exposed to the human experience of illnesses.
