Leveringstid: Sendes innen 21 dager
What is the value of 'faith healing' in understanding distress and treatment in different cultural contexts?
What is a critical psychological perspective on faith and religious systems?
What challenges do alternative religious practices pose to critical psychology?
How should we re-imagine clinical work in a context marked by science and religion?
Situated between 'West' and 'East', between the global mental health movement and local faith-based practices in India, the book addresses a wide audience that includes students and researchers in psychology, cultural and medical anthropology, the sociology of religion, cultural theory, postcolonial theory, and the sociology of science. It will also appeal to policy-makers and practitioners interested in the work of NGOs and the legal frameworks driving mental health movements in India.
