Charles Watters’ book provides enlightening insights into the possibilities that are embedded in the diversity of intercultural encounters and transitions.

This book is a welcome addition and a timely challenge to our understanding of the intersections between migration, mental wellbeing and the mind-body connection. It provides novel insights into the impact of population transitions on paradigms and practices that support mental wellbeing, with exciting implications for public policy. – Prof. Kevin Fenton, Public Health England
This book explores transitions and transformations of health practices that go along with cultural mobility. The encounter with diverse cultures can enlarge our view of the pathways to wellbeing, including spirituality, religion and connection to nature. In a concise and compelling way, the book shows how we can move toward a renewed biopsychosocial approach in mental health care. – Prof. Laurence Kirmayer, McGill University, Canada
