Traditional Healing

  • Ari Kiev

Abstract

Efforts to question the psychological meaningfulness of “nonscientific”therapeutic systems generally have been too critical of the beliefs and practices associated with these forms of healing and have failed to understand that the therapeutic process relates to a series of procedures which link into the underlying emotional experiences of the patient, by means of which the patient is enabled to re-establish a more normal pattern of relating to the culture.
