In this enlightening book two Western-trained psychiatrists discuss the special challenges of their mental health work with ultra-orthodox Jews in Jerusalem. Based on two decades of serving this self-isolated religious minority, Drs. Greenberg and Witztum describe the difficulties of treating and even diagnosing members of the community and suggest principles for therapists working in any multicultural society.
