Joseph Couture was a key member of the Network for Aboriginal Mental Health Research. We are pleased to announce the published of his collected essays.
A Metaphoric Mind: Selected Writings of Joseph Couture is a collection of essays by Joe Couture, the educational psychologist and expert in Aboriginal healing who spearheaded the formation of the first native studies department at Trent University. Edited by Ruth Couture and Virginia McGowan, the essays touch on the growth of Aboriginal activism in the 1960s and 1970s as well as topics germane to the movement: spirituality and ancestral ways of knowing, Elders and their teachings, justice and the restorative process, and the role of education in self-determination and social change.
