Overview

H'oponopono, a traditional Hawaiian family problem-solving process, is experiencing a current revival. Found to be a valid and useful method of resolving family and group conflict by both Hawaiians and non-Hawaiians, it has recently been adapted and successfully used in both old and new ways. This book demonstrates how eight individuals applied this ancient practice to situations ranging from social work with Hawaiian families to drug abuse treatment programs and wilderness courses. Background information on the hisotryand context of the practice and a review of related cultural and mental health issues set the focus. In Ho'oponopono, E. Victoria Shook has provided us with a rare example of a non-Western cultural practice being used successfully in a Western culture and has opened the door for consideration of alternative models of cultural exchange.
