Dialogue

123 Therapeutic Stories from Traditional Society and Their Solution

Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, 2007

The discussion is conducted as follows: a student presents a problem that has arisen in one of the many traditional communities in Israel (Muslim, Christian, Bedouin, Druze, new immigrants from Ethiopia and the Caucasus, certain religious communities, etc.). The problems are drawn from the student’s family, from his or her work as a teacher or as an educational counselor, as well as from other sources. A multi-cultural dialogue develops around the problem in question, in which the participants suggest solutions they are familiar with from their culture, and the author adds the Western perspective derived from his experience as a clinical psychologist. Different cultures thus interact in a productive dialogue with a single aim – to help people in distress.
