"Denial or Faith?" Therapy versus Messianism in Preparing for the Evacuation of Israeli Settlements
Amrami, Galia Plotkin
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v46 n4 p414-430 Dec 2015
This article offers an ethnographic account of the professional activities of mental health practitioners, employed by the state's religious education system. I analyze various models implemented by practitioners for the purposes of preparing pupils for the state-mandated evacuation of Jewish settlers from Gaza and the West Bank. By focusing on the interaction between psychological and religious-national cultural frameworks I show how practitioners imbue familiar professional concepts with new meanings and create hybrid models of intervention.
