Narrative Medicine: The Power of Story in Indigenous Healing

      $ 30.95

Rate this:

The Use of History and Story in the Healing Process Lewis Mehl-Madrona‚Äôs Narrative Medicine examines the foundations of the indigenous use of story as a healing modality. Citing numerous case histories that demonstrate the profound power of narrative in healing, the author shows how when we learn to dialogue with disease, we come to understand the power of the ‚Äústory‚ÄĚ we tell about our illness and our possibilities for better health. He shows how this approach also includes examining our relationships to our extended community to find any underlying disharmony that may need healing. Mehl-Madrona points the way to a new model of medicine--a health care system that draws its effectiveness from listening to the healing wisdom of the past and also to the present-day voices of its patients.
