Description:
'This book emphasises that all healing is cultural, in its own particular social and political context, rooted in particular notions of the person, of healing, of the family and other individuals, and in language and symbolisations. In the midst of all this, some sense of self emerges - and this of course is the particular concern of psychotherapy. The emphasis here is less on "the" correct approach (which can be a disabling conceit) as on our thinking about whatever happens, or doesn't happen, in therapy - and then taking that into account. Particularly useful is the idea of migration and subsequent acculturation as a psychological journey for which the second and third generations offer variants. The authors offer a perspective which moves us away from an idea of pathology or problem to one that presents the minority experience as potentially creative, both for the individuals so poignantly concerned and for the rest of us. Truly an exciting journey.'-Roland Littlewood, Professor of Anthropology and Psychiatry, University College London, Department of Anthropology and Department of Mental Health Sciences
