Desert shrinks get global gong

 

If the term psychotherapy conjures for many the image of a bearded
Sigmund Freud in early 20th century Vienna putting his patients on the
couch, the Sixth World Congress for Psychotherapy has a mind-expanding
surprise in store. Aptly titled World Dreaming, the event in Sydney on
August 26 will honour with its Sigmund Freud Award the contribution to
the field of psychotherapy by Aboriginal ngangkari (traditional healers)
from the Pit Lands in Central Australia. Pictured are
ngangkari Iluwanti Ken, Naomi Kantjurin and Maringka Burton (photo
