  • This report attempts to identify key themes within the seminar and highlight questions pertinent to the use of complementary therapies in mental health treatment. It draws selectively from addresses and workshops presented, comments and discussions during the seminar as well as feedback from the evaluation forms. The report addresses three key concerns: what complementary therapies are, whether they are valid and effective and how this is known ; whether or not complementary therapies are an extension of existing conventional methods ; and, whether complementary therapies are an alternative to (different from) conventional methods. In addition, the report discusses certain issues pertaining to the use of complementary therapies with Black people, particularly the compatibility of the value or culture base of complementary therapies with that of Black people.
