Marjolein van Duijl explores the relationship between spirit possession, dissociative symptoms and traumatizing experiences in Uganda. She attempts to understand dissociative complaints that are attributed to spirits as a way in which Ugandans express their problems. Her goal is to bridge the gap between Western psychiatry and local phenomena and explanations.
