Traditional Healing Practices into Counseling and Psychotherapy seeks to define, redefine and identify indigenous and traditional healing in the context of North American and Western European health care, particularly in counseling psychology and psychotherapy. The book examines traditional and cultural healing from a wide variety of traditions focusing particularly of those communities that are living in the West. While the focus is on integrating traditional healing into counseling psychology and psychotherapy the book draws attention to the use of traditional healing in health care generally. Explorations of the current issues and debates of integrating traditional healing with contemporary practice are key features in the book. While the use of traditional and cultural healing practices of indigenous communities represent the central focus, other contemporary alternative health care movements, viz., paganism, New Age Spirituality and healing, transcendental meditation and new religious movements are discussed.
