I’d really like to know about the experience of living so disconnected to the rest of the world for so long
Tony and colleagues, Great talk! I enjoyed it. Glad you mentioned the WHO strategy to incorporate traditional healers into healthcare. My reaction to this strategy in a recent chapter was that integration can provide important quality control, testing of efficacy, but it shouldn’t provide a rationalization for ignoring paying for effective care or ignoring the sustainable development goal of actual wellbeing as an outcome. I think looking at therapeutic process is important, but there are issues with only looking at outcome in the immediate aftermath of a healing ritual delivered by a venerated healer. The social pressure exerted by itself can condition a self-report of feeling better. Do you have plans to look at longer-term outcomes at all?
Also, are patients looking for a quick fix to feel better immediately? This was my experience in Bhutan and elsewhere. If you have to cooperate with treatment over several weeks or months, people don’t see the value of cooperating in the treatment, especially when they can experience an immediate psychological state of feeling better with traditional healers.
Can we talk about the cost of traditional of traditional healer and family member in care delivery?
It's a very impressive presentation
Apparently you're not hearing me
Just read my comments Tony
I have a question about preventive programs and traditional healing. I work with visible minority seniors and many avoid mental health topics due to stigma. Would perhaps be possible to use traditional healing and preventive programs?
How do they deal with the social pressure I the processus of healing
It might be worthwhile too to consider gender in diagnosis, illness experience, healing, etc. It struck me in first case study that modes of hesitancy etc. emerged in the encounter with the woman patient.. perhaps constructions and conditions interact with gender in important ways?
what is the role of the community organization about traditional healing
# Angela Leocata, in my personal experience woman are more open to healers than medical personnel especially in the rural area.
Great Talk. Thank you
Thanks again! I appreciated the focus on family and community response, which is very important (in addition to ritual or traditional medicine interventions). Best of luck in the ongoing research!

Tony V Pham
most appreciate your excellent presentations and the questions it raises
Great presentation, thank you
As Eric Jacobson mentioned I would say that not each and every traditional healer cannot be kept in a single basket of Traditional Healer. They have their own set of knowledge to be explored separately
Thank you everyone
thank you so much!!!
Thank you for the great presentation
