Description

This book brings together in one volume the work of the Just Therapy Team which has, over the last two decades, inspired and challenged therapists and community workers in many different countries and contexts. Their introduction of the term ‘Just Therapy’ and their determination to bring issues of gender, culture and socioeconomic justice into therapeutic considerations have had powerful implications. So too, has their example of taking the personal stories of those who consult them as therapists into broader political and policy arenas. The Just Therapy Team’s committed, dignified and caring cultural partnerships have signalled alternative ways of conceptualising working relationships. Their descriptions of therapy as a sacred encounter, their honouring of Indigenous traditions of spirituality, and the ways in which they always seek culturally appropriate healing ways have changed forever our understandings of the responsibilities of therapists and healers. This book describes their work in detail. We hope it will act as a resource both for those familiar with the work of the Just Therapy Team and those seeking an introduction to their exciting and challenging ideas.
