I become curious about what TCM philosophies and practices could contribute to health promotion. In working with children on welfare, I found that most of them had lost their fathers through accidents, suicide, illness, imprisonment, mental illness, gambling, or divorce. Their mothers were mostly sick, weak, or had little education, could not find work to support the family, and thus had to live on public welfare. When the mothers shared their painful stories, many of them collapsed in tears. Despite their pain, many of them lived with dignity, kept a tidy home, and provided well for their children.

Siporin (1986) claimed that predominant social work theories neglected the person’s spiritual side by emphasizing self-fulfillment and self-actualization on a personal or ego level (rather than a transpersonal level). ” This boundary not only creates a sense of selfidentity for individuals but also leads to polarities, oppositions, and conflicts. Such a “closet” definition of the self contrasts with the teachings of Buddhism, which views the boundary between the “self’ and the “not-self” as an illusion created by the human mind.
