Collaborative and Indigenous Mental Health Therapy: Tātaihono – Stories of Māori Healing and Psychiatry (Writing Lives: Ethnographic Narratives)
'Collaborative and Indigenous Mental Health Therapy: Taitohono: Stories of Maori Healing and Psychiatry’ was released several weeks ago by Routledge here in New Zealand. Launches were held in Gisborne, Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington(Lower Hutt and Porirua). There has been considerable interest in the release of this book a several NZ/Australian university programmes have pre-ordered copies for required reading for university courses. The unpublished manuscript had won the ‘best unpublished manuscript on body, mind and spirit’ awarded by the Ashton Wylie Foundation in 2014. It was then re-written to internationalise it first for Left Coast Press who was then taken over by Routledge. Prof Arthur Bochner, who recently released his co-authored(Carolyn Ellis) Evocative Autoethnography: Writing Lives and Telling Stories, is the series editor(Writing Lives: Ethnographic Narratives) and we are indebted to him for ushering this book in to publication.
