|Title||Psychiatry Among the James Bay Cree: A Focus on Pathological Grief Reactions|
|Year of Publication||1993|
This article was written by a psychiatrist working with the James Bay Cree for 10 years, both in the communities and in Montreal. It describes distinctive psychiatric features arising primarily from Cree culture itself and from the effects of inundation by the European cultures. An extensive overview of Cree history precedes general features of psychiatry among the Cree including a discussion of Cree sex roles, the role of the Pentecostal church and the unique features of northern practice. The latter half of the article is devoted to special features of Cree psychiatric disorders using the example of grieving responses.
