Traditional healers manage at least 80% of healthcare needs of rural inhabitants in developing countries including Uganda. At least, 40% of clients/patients of traditional healers have mental health problems. In Africa especially, evidence shows that people use both modern and traditional healing systems. However, little is known about the methods used in management of mental health problems and the type of mental health problems treated by traditional healers. The purpose of this book therefore is to describe types of methods and materials used by traditional healers in their management of mental health problems. Specifically the book describes characteristics of Traditional Healers, the treatments they use, their diagnostic work up, duration of treatment, referral system, follow-up, record keeping and their classification of mental health problems. The book has been written for a wide readership: Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Anthropologists interested in Transcultural Psychiatry, those interested in Alternative forms of treatment in mental health or anyone else in the field of mental health who considers culture as its important component.

Psychiatry and Decolonisation in Uganda
105,16 € *

This open access book investigates psychiatry in Uganda during the years of decolonisation. It examines the challenges facing a new generation of psychiatrists as they took over responsibility for psychiatry at the end of empire, and explores the ways psychiatric practices were tied to shifting political and development priorities, periods of instability, and a broader context of transnational and international exchange. At its heart is a question that has concerned psychiatrists globally since the mid-twentieth century: how to bridge the social and cultural gap between psychiatry and its patients? Bringing together archival research with oral histories, Yolana Pringle traces how this question came to dominate both national and international discussions on mental health care reform, including at the World Health Organization, and helped spur a culture of experimentation and creativity globally. As Pringle shows, however, the history of psychiatry during the years of decolonisation remained one of marginality, and ultimately, in the context of war and violence, the decolonisation of psychiatry was incomplete.

Psychiatrists and Traditional Healers

Up to 85 percent of the world's population relies on traditional healers and medicines to meet their health care needs. In Uganda, for example, the ratio of traditional healers to population is 1:200, contrasting dramatically with biomedically trained health professionals, for which the ratio is 1:20,000. In the Andes of South America, there are no psychiatric or mental health services available to the Indigenous Peoples who therefore depend entirely on traditional healers, family and community support to cope with their mental health problems and to relieve their psychological distress. Psychiatrists and Traditional Healers focuses on the significant contribution of traditional healers to the wellbeing of most of the world's population, and considers the role of these unwitting partners in global mental health. * This book presents original research data, clinical experiences, case vignettes, and pilot psychiatric collaborative programs between traditional healers and psychiatrists in countries around the world * All chapters highlight, in various ways, the unanticipated and often unrecognized contributions of traditional healers and traditional psychiatric knowledge to global mental health * Features a Foreword by Dr Goffredo Bartocci, President-elect of the World Association of Cultural Psychiatry Psychiatrists and Traditional Healers: Unwitting Partners in Global Mental Health makes fascinating reading for clinicians, researchers, community mental health practitioners, educators, and mental health policy makers, as well those interested in cultural psychiatry and the role of traditional healers in mental health.
