Counseling Native American Indians: Insights from Conversations with Beaver


Counseling Native American Indians: Insights from Conversations with Beaver expertly weaves the story of Beaver, a member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma who embraced Native American Indian spiritual practices to overcome substance abuse, together with insights on how to incorporate the cultural beliefs underlying these practices into daily living. The book also offers guidance to non-indigenous counselors and others who wish to work effectively within the Native American Community in reservation or urban settings. In opening chapters readers learn from Beaver's detailed account practical insights on Indian cultural values from growing up in a communal Choctaw community in Oklahoma. Subsequent chapters feature interviews with Beaver, which recount his experiences growing up in a loving Choctaw family that was led by a medicine man uncle, surviving abuse in an Indian boarding school, surviving combat in the Pacific during World War ll, and relocating into an urban Indian community where he started a substance abuse treatment program for Native American Indians. He recounts his evolution from substance abuser to a leader of traditional ceremonies such as the sweat lodge and vision quest. He became a highly respected healer who helped many find relief from physical and emotional problems, as recounted by other individuals in this book. The book also offers information on the structure of the modern day Native American Indian community and stresses the importance of modern day Indians adhering to traditional values. Counseling Native American Indians simultaneously shares the inspiring story of Beaver's life while providing valuable advice for counseling Native American populations. The text is well suited for courses in Native American Studies and psychology and counseling, especially those that focus on multicultural approaches."Gene" Hightower is a licensed psychologist and a past director of mental health services at the Native American Health Center in Oakland, California.
