Mental Health Services for American Indians and Eskimos
Torrey, E. Fuller
Community Mental Health Journal, 6, 6, 455-462, Dec '70
Services are surveyed and found to be inadequate. A plan is outlined for the development of such services based upon the use of indigenous therapists for individual and group psychotherapy, the modification of etiological beliefs, and an emphasis upon primary prevention. The outcome would be services specifically adapted to the culture, realistically commensurate with available manpower, and compatible with dignity for the group. (Author/CJ)
