HEALING NARRATIVES OF WOMEN
Everyone goes through cycles of suffering and healing. While pain and suffering take their toll, healing is not far behind. Working within the social constructionist approach, this book examines the psychological healing narratives of eight women who had encountered intense tragedies in their personal lives and slowly but surely emerged out of their painful experiences. Broad generalizations about the healing process are discussed, by locating the nonconscious as its epicentre. The concept of the nonconscious includes repressed memories, the mind's efficient information processing system, sources of creativity, wisdom, spirituality, and more. A model of consciousness is proposed to explore what entails in the transition from suffering to healing. The stories of these women will help to understand how the healing process was activated in their innermost recesses. Based on research in India, this book alludes to the presence of a healer within, who works in silent imperceptible ways to restore the individual's mental health.
