This pioneering volume documents, in accessible language, local healing traditions and demonstrates the effectiveness of using the resources of local communities. The second volume in the Patterns of Northern Traditional Healing series, this collection by ten experts also records how ancient healing traditions and modern health care systems worked and sometimes competed to provide solutions for local problems. Idioms of Sámi Health and Healing is one of the first English-language studies of theses topics, and offers valuable insight and academic context to those in the fields of anthropology, medical anthropology, transcultural psychiatry, and circumpolar studies."--"@en ;
