Description

Guided by the concept of synergy, this groundbreaking collection explores alternatives in the areas of counseling, education, and community health and development. Synergy refers to the process of two or more things coming together to create a new, greater, and often-unexpected whole. When synergy exists, formerly scarce resources can expand and become renewable and accessible to all.

Drawing upon the diverse cultural experiences of Aboriginal groups in North America and around the world, these compelling narratives provide practical insights into the emergence of synergy and obstacles to its existence. Synergy, Healing and Empowerment offers invaluable guidance in the pursuit of a just and equitable society.

Synergy, Healing, and Empowerment is an incredible book. Making a compelling case for the paradigm of synergy, which releases an everexpanding network of healing and empowerment, this book could not be more necessary and timely.

Synergy, Healing, and Empowerment is an especially important book. By pushing the envelope, it shows us the direction counselling and psychotherapy must go.
