Homepage: Lewis Mehl-Madrona, MD, PhD
The purpose of this website is to introduce people to my work: books, essays, lectures, scientific papers, etc., and to provide the resources necessary to interact with me for writing projects, research, lectures, workshops, trainings, and consultations. My focus arises out of a desire to celebrate indigenous culture, particularly that of North America, and to show how contemporary health care practices can be enriched through the inclusion of the ideas of indigenous culture into contemporary work. Thus, I will speak about traditional healing, about how psychotherapy and medicine can be modified to include the insights of traditional healing. I am interested in narrative medicine as a means for which storied indigenous practices enter contemporary medicine and psychology. I am interested in dialogical self theory and therapy as a contemporary parallel to the self-theory of indigenous cultures. I am interested in how we can train new doctors to be simultaneously humanistic, narrative, and evidence-based.
