Delusive Healers of India
Phenomenological Approach to Therapy (2013)
Delusive healing is a therapy modality of some traditional healers who covertly perceive the sickness to be psychosomatic and induce cure using bizarre techniques and practices by deceiving the patients. Although apparently it is similar to some forms of magical or religio-magical healings, the healers primarily identify the sickness as psychosomatic and then delude the clients by enacting the removal of physical objects from the body to alleviate pain and induce cure.
The Book talks about a Phenomenological Counselling model based on indigenous concepts inferred from a study on Delusive healers.
