Healing and Mental Health for Native Americans: Speaking in Red
Ethan Nebelkopf, Mary Phillips
Rowman Altamira, Jan 1, 2004 - Psychology - 227 pages
In this book, the authors highlight the importance of eliminating health disparities and increasing the access of Native Americans to critical substance abuse and mental health services. While most chapters are framed in scientific terms, they are concerned with promoting healing through changes in the way we treat our sick-spiritually, traditionally, ceremonially, and scientifically-whether in rural areas, on reservations, and in cities. The book will be a valuable resource for medical and mental health professionals, medical anthropologists, and the Native health community. Visit our website for sample chapters!
