September 2009, Psychiatrische Universitätsklinik Zürich Workshop in Co-ordination with MAS Medical Anthropology Switzerland Interdisciplinary Commission of the Swiss Ethnological Society Lecture Hall/Hörsaal Z1 03, Lenggstrasse 31, CH-8008 Zürich Ethnographic Film and Psychiatry: Documentary presentation of help seeking from India

The ethnographic documentary Kusum (2000) will be shown and discussed with its scientific advisor.
The film is an audiovisual documentation in traditional treatment of psychological problems of an
Indian family. Kusum is an ordinary teenage Indian girl. She lives in Delhi, goes to school and thinks
about her future. Until she falls ill. Kusum stops eating, isolates herself and has severe fits of bad
temper. Spirits are troubling the family, says Bhagat, an experienced healer. The family seeks help
from western medicine but eventually turns to traditional spiritual healing under Bhagat in a healing
shrine. There is considerable evidence from the Indian subcontinent that rural and urban community-
based healers and healing shrines offer help for mental suffering. Ethnographic accounts of mental
health treatment in so called traditional societies show moreover that rather than being excluded, the
afflicted individuals become a centre of caring and attention by their relatives and fellow villagers. As
professionals of crisis solving, healers organize and lead group sessions aimed at interpersonal healing
and community reintegration. Does family-, network- and community-oriented treatment in the west
something similar across distances in time, place and culture? How can ethnographic documentaries
contribute to our conceptions of traditional healing and spirit possession? Focus will be on the logic of
the local healing system via ethnographic visual examples of treatment explained by the praxis.
