p. 35  “Note the shamanic traditions, where the healer and the sufferer join together to reexperience terror while calling on cosmic forces to release the grip of the demons.  The shaman is always first initiated, via a profound encounter with his own helplessness and feeling of being shattered, prior to assuming the mantle of healer.  Such preparation might suggest a model whereby contemporary therapists must first recognize and engage with their own traumas and emotional wounds.”
