Expertly compiled and professionally edited by clinical psychologist Tawa M. Witko, Mental Health Care For Urban Indians: Clinical Insights From Native Practitioners is a extensive documentation of the cultural and historical impact of colonization on Native American cultures and the resultant psychological repercussions still present in the Native American population. Introducing a basic understanding of the history surrounding Native American urban migration and boarding schools, Mental Health Care For Urban Indians identifies the link between traditional healing methods and progressive psychology and advocates the practical use of both in treating mental health conditions manifesting in urban dwelling Native Americans today. With significant insights drawn in part from native practitioners, Mental Health Care For Urban Indians is very strongly recommended reading for psychologists, counselors, and health care professionals working with Native American clients in American cities today.
