“This book honors the rich history and impact of traditional Asian healing practices by providing a comprehensive exposition of the history, philosophy, traditional practices, contemporary formulations, and its integration with Western practices. Health care practitioners of many disciplines will benefit by expanding their perspectives and repertoire of interventions from these complementary treatment approaches, thereby improving the quality of care that they provide, not only to Asians but other populations as well.”
“This volume will be a practical and valuable reference manual for teachers, lecturers, and researchers who are in counseling and psychotherapy.”
“Finally—one book that outlines key Asian healing traditions and provides suggestions on how to integrate them with Western practices.”
“This textbook is an exciting compilation of Asian healing practices that serves to inform our continually evolving profession of psychotherapy. Developing a sensibility towards Asian cultural healing practices expands our professional repertoire and enhances our ability to provide culturally relevant clinical services.”
“In preparing for my theories course in the past I have attempted to locate resources to incorporate Asian and other Eastern perspectives into my course and it has proven somewhat difficult. This text brings all of those resources together and would be instrumental in helping my students to understand different perspectives other than the traditional Western counseling theories taught in most courses.”
“An intense, mind-opening experience to a different perspective on how one lives in this world.”
