NPR story told by a doctor who studies depression. In a war wreaked country, a small lady, war and tortured survivor, watched depressed women unable to care for their children. She devised a plan to heal them: 1. describe haunting stories they need to get rid of and replace with better stories. 2. get them working. These are the new concerns on which to focus. 3. Make them give each other manicures and pedicures. They had to learn to touch each other in non threatening ways in order to heal. This enabled them to look to each other for pleasure.
