This book is a major Runajambi achievement.  It is the result of a joint effort of Runajambi and the Transcultural Psychiatry Section of the World Psychiatric Association.  The book is also a fruitful development of the International symposium "Psychiatrists and Healers: Unwitting Partners - A Challenge for Transcultural Psychiatry  in Times of Globalization," held in Quito, Ecuador in 2005. The symposium was organized by Runajambi and sponsored by the Transcultural Psychiatry Section of the World Psychiatric Association.  For our symposium details, click
