Pathology and Identity by Roland Littlewood
Book DescriptionThe first new religion in the Caribbean since Rastafari, the Earth People draw on West African sources, assert a renascent African identity, and celebrate female creativity. They argue that Black people are the guardians of a natural environment, which is constantly under threat from European science. In this 1993 book, Dr Littlewood, who is both a psychiatrist and a social anthropologist, criticizes received ideas about pathology and creativity. The founder's ideas emerged in her experience of cerebral disease, and Dr Littlewood shows how the Earth People reinterpret radical personal experiences to build a community. While naturalistic and personalistic interpretations of human life are both valid and necessary, neither can be reduced to the other.

Books By Author Roland Littlewood
Religion, Agency, Restitution, Paperback (June 2001)
There exists a close relationship between the explanations of misfortune, reconciliation, and restitution in the historical - and other - religions and in therapeutics. This work examines the religious aspect in systems of therapeutics, and the appearance of healing practices within social institutions that are generally regarded as religious.
Intercultural Therapy, Paperback (September 1999)
There are many problems in working psychotherapeutically across cultures, with numerous examples of failure to understand cultural issues. For example, the ignorance of traditional family structures can lead to major diagnostic and therapeutic errors.
Aliens and Alienists, Paperback (April 1997)
Updated edition of this text, in which, through a series of case studies, the authors examine the links between racism, psychological ill health and inadequate treatment of ethnic minorities. The work also reviews the development of transcultural psychiatry in Britain.
