"If you are a student, professor, or practitioner of the ′talking cures′ – buy this book, read it, use it, and experience the difference it makes in your thoughts and actions." –Anthony J. Marsella, Ph.D., D.H.C., University of Hawaii, Honolulu, for PsycCritiques (Contemporary Psychology), APA, November 15, 2005 issue

Integrating Traditional Healing Practices Into Counseling and Psychotherapy critically examines ethnic minority cultural and traditional healing in relation to counseling and psychotherapy. Authors Roy Moodley and William West highlight the challenges and changes in the field of multicultural counseling and psychotherapy by integrating current issues of traditional healing with contemporary practice. The book uniquely presents a range of accounts of the dilemmas and issues facing students, professional counselors, psychotherapists, social workers, researchers, and others who use multicultural counseling or transcultural psychotherapy as part of their professional practice.    

Key Features:

Contributes to the wider debates about ethnic minority health care by focusing on how ethnic minority groups construct illness perceptions and the kinds of treatments they expect to solve health and mental health problems
Analyzes traditional healing of racial, ethnic, and religious groups living in the United States, Canada, and Britain to consider the diffusion of healing practices across cultural boundaries
 Explores contemporary alternative health care movements such as paganism, New Age Spirituality and healing, transcendental meditation, and new religious movements to increase the knowledge and capacity of clinical expertise of students studying in this field  

Integrating Traditional Healing Practices Into Counseling and Psychotherapy is an ideal text for undergraduate and graduate students studying multicultural counseling or psychotherapy. The book is also a valuable resource for academics, researchers, psychotherapists, counselors, and other practitioners.
