Psi Chi Distinguished Lecturer

Lessons From Indigenous Psychology:
The Contemporary Serpent Handlers of Appalachia and the Psychological
Study of Religion

The critical yet sympathetic study of indigenous traditions of faith that survive in opposition to their larger host cultures allow for a nuanced understanding of beliefs and practices otherwise dismissed as bizarre of distortions of reality. In this sense one can see Appalachia as American’s Tibet with the same cultural and psychological dynamics operating.
