This book deals with the topic of traditional burial rites from anthropological, psychological and religious angles. It takes the position that these rituals have direct parallels with current psychological and religious practices and that more should be done to integrate them into modern day counselling practices. It is an investigation into the therapeutic aspect of the mourning ritual performed by the Tonga people of Zambia. It advances approaches to understanding how indigenous communities cope with death.
