Harmony Restoration Therapy: Theory And Practice

3,000.00

Abstract

One cardinal aim of all Psychotherapies is the alleviation of people’s physical and mental
illness using psychological principles. In Nigeria and other African countries, there have
cravings for the indigenization of psychotherapy in order to make it relevant to Africans.
Harmony Restoration Therapy developed by Ebigbo (1995) is one of the outcomes of such
yearnings for Africa-culture oriented therapy. This therapy treats abnormal behaviour, by
restoring the equilibrium in human life and living using holistic as well as eclectic
approaches. The theory of Harmony Restoration Therapy perceives man as a component of
three entities, namely: Endo, Meso and Exo cosmos. These three entities are inseparable and
maintain a harmonious relationship. An abnormal person distinguished from a normal
person when the three entities are not working, interwoven as a whole. Sanity, therefore, is
restored when the discrepancy among the three domains is resolved and harmonious
relationship maintained
