dc.description.abstractThe following study examines ritual studies, first through tracing the evolution of the field of ritual theory, and subsequently through identifying the various aspects of ritual that serve to fulfill its function of achieving wholeness, and therefore health. It is with this consideration that the structure of ritual is analyzed as effective in combination with other healing tools. This is evidenced through a look at how ritual structure underlies the techniques of expressive arts therapy. By identifying ritual structure at work in unexpected places, it then becomes possible to propose it as an intentional tool for healing. This is an essential realization in light of the declining health on all levels within modern American culture.
