Father Hank Nunn of Bangalore

I tried to get in touch with Father Hank at the Athma Shakti Vidyalaya Society a few years ago when I was desperate enough to consider sending Chris all the way across the world for treatment in India. Father Hank’s name does come up from time to time when people are looking for a center that has a minimal to zero use of medications and a more humane view of “mental illness.” Father Hank was influenced by Jaqui Schiff and transactional analysis.

Transactional analysis “offers a theory for child development by explaining how our adult patterns of life originated in childhood. This explanation is based on the idea of a “Life (or Childhood) Script”: the assumption that we continue to re-play childhood strategies, even when this results in pain or defeat. Thus it claims to offer a theory of psychopathology.”(Wikipedia)
