Could there be environmental, individual, societal, and attachment factors that come together in the healing process in both traditional and non-traditional landscapes? This observation is particularly important and has implications for the understanding of both healing and disruption in the lives of individuals. In Belonging, Therapeutic Landscapes, and Networks, Dr. Griffith examines factors that influence the intersection of health and place, one's sense of belonging, and the constructing of therapeutic spaces that minimize psychosocial disruption in our daily lives." -- from cover.
