Two Years In Kingston Town is the story of a married couple--Jeff, a psychologist, and Maria, a psychiatric nurse--that decide to pull up stakes and go off for a two-year sojourn as Peace Corps Volunteers in Jamaica. It tells of their struggles to adapt, what they did in their assignments at the University Hospital of the West Indies, places they visited, and people they met. Written with insight and humor, it brings to life the vibrant, colorful city of Kingston and describes places and things in Jamaica that few visitors ever see. Filled with details about Jamaican culture and customs, it also provides an inside look at Peace Corps service--its challenges and rewards. The book also contains vivid accounts of therapy with recovering addicts, and will appeal to mental health professionals with an interest in cross-cultural therapy.
