More recently, however, Eduardo F. Duran (2006) has published Healing the Soul Wound: Counseling with American Indians and Other Native Peoples as part of the Teachers College series on the Multicultural Foundations of Psychology and Counseling. As with other multicultural counseling approaches, Duran's primary assumption is that conventional, typical, or mainstream therapy is at best irrelevant and at worst iatrogenic for Native clients.

Eduardo Duran―a psychologist working in Indian country―draws on his own clinical experience to provide guidance to counselors working with Native Peoples. Translating theory into actual day-to-day practice, Duran presents case materials that illustrate effective intervention strategies for prevalent problems, including substance abuse, intergenerational trauma, and internalized oppression. Offering a culture-specific approach that has profound implications for all counseling and therapy, this groundbreaking volume:

Provides invaluable concepts and strategies that can be applied directly to practice. Outlines very different ways of serving American Indian clients, translating Western metaphor into Indigenous ideas that make sense to Native People. Presents a model in which patients have a relationship with the problems they are having, whether these are physical, mental, or spiritual. Includes a section in each chapter to help non-American Indian counselors generalize the concepts presented to use in their own practice in culturally sensitive ways.

I have to say this book is fabulous, despite the odd minor criticism. I actually brought a few things on the subject of cultural clarity to the attention of the author who was welcoming of feedback and whom showed interest in reading some of my own culture's perspective on these issues. On the whole this book does much positively in the way of challenging the status-quo perspective on personal wellbeing and mental health issues in our society today. We have at large one of the most serious crises affecting our world today - that of soul loss and spiritual/cultural disenfranchisement on an epidemic scale, which is at the root, the underlying cause, of all the wars and conflicts of countless varieties on the face of the earth.

Eduardo's book teaches readers much concerning the need for the psychotherapeutic/psychiatric branch of the Western medical profession to become more open to deferring expertise or know-how to worldviews which have for decades, if not centuries, been ignored and downplayed as "irrational and/or unrealistic" in being able to offer genuine solutions to many problems in society at large today. Native cultures right across the globe have been blessed with much insight from the Creator, for at one time, all populations shared a common experience. It is a fact that now as in the more recent history, even back to the more recent ancient history that feudal hegemony in the West has had a magnitudinous effect on severing the tie between the West and the knowledge of how social structure critically influences how people within society engage with each other and the wider creation. This is not to say that Western society knows nothing about how to do this in harmony with all creation - in fact - there is much within Western philosophical ethics which does honor life and respect the rights of all in the creation to live a life of positively meaningful fulfillment. It's more that within the West's institutional structures, the main means of becoming informed lie with 'experts' who like to maintain a monopolistic position on their knowledge roles and in order to sustain this monopoly, they push the premise often that no other worldview except that which is in accordance with scientific empiricism, has any if much at all, efficacy or "medically proven" basis for being effective in problem-solving areas. This is why it is a turn for the better to see that Eduardo is doing some way-paving for the mainstream in his field and equally important is his dedication to the welfare of his own people.

I have replied to the 1-star reviewer whose review was absolutely pathetic, needfully reminding them that the author is part of the Native community and has trained in the traditional practices also! And good on those people who seriously "wannabe" more attuned to traditional ways in conjunction with the mainstream scholastic views! Eduardo Duran does well in this book to advocate for a more open-minded awareness about traditional worldviews within mainstream Western psychotherapy/psychiatry. Too often the profession sorely overlooks other paradigms or relegates them to a vague last resort should all 'medical expertise' fail, much to the detriment of many patients when these patients could have been attended to sooner and with much more success. It shouldn't be only the 'lucky few' that have access to healthier alternatives. What about all those still imprisoned within the confines of ignorant diagnostic yard-sticks? This is what he is talking about when he says cultural competency is a must for the long-standing closed-minded professions within the Western medical paradigm - this is the only way they can break through the obstinacies of theoretical dogmatism.

Although this book is recommended for those involved in counseling or therapeutic professions, it is really a great book for anyone interested in exploring culturally inclusive ways and means of resolving life's more perplexing challenges, for Natives and non-Natives alike. Patients and others seeking help can also benefit from reading this book.

Human beings must take a look at the issues that they have endured in life and recognize the lingering unresolved trauma that plays out in our lives every day! This book will give you insight into the lingering psychological effects of trauma! The author is phenomenal in giving us steps to healing!

I believe we are all deeply wounded from our ignorance of our true natures. The healing of the soul wound will benefit our ancestors as well as our future generations. I resonated with Dr Duran's comments and way of working. I am not Native American but was scooped up by the processes that are described in this book and feel that I am not a broken person but a vibrant human who is in a healing process. May we all bare our suffering well.

The wisdom of the ancestors is something we lost in our society. The writer puts problems in a historic / intergenerational context. The Bible mentions this intergenerational context in a different way. Combining these approaches provides access to solutions or healing, whereby healing in the book is about harmony and balance. Looking at illnesses in this way provides new space and ways to help to cope with them, in stead of taking pills to "cure" as the only way.

The book is worth reading for health professionals, people who practise family constellations, and even for organization advisors, who want to create sound organizations and sound relationships at work.
A daring thought is the following: the present financial crisis is caused by some way of thinking/acting that is connected to the past, to the history of the present major decisionmakers. As the crisis can not be solved with the same consciousness that caused the crisis, it is worth trying to work with the spiritual elements described in this book, worth trying to go deep into the intergenerational context of the crisis. It takes courage to do so, I believe it is worth the effort. Our children would be delighted.

This author is Native American Native and a trained Cognitive Behavioral Therapist. It is practical to see how he uses Native beliefs, culture and spirituality with Western Psychology.

Such a meaningful and touching book about Native American pain from generations of genocide and abuse.

I loved this book. It is the most important book I have read regarding Native Americans. It has helped me understand their culture and issues.
