Private practice in Anthropology

Hi every one,

I read an article in Omni about an anthropologist in New York who has a
"private practice", I think his name is Case. I don't quite understand
what he really does with his clients. It seems that he does interviews
with the Why questions to find out their belief systems and thus helps
the clients find out about themselves. I like to hear from anyone who
knows more about this way of practice. What would you catagorize his work
in the field of study? I also would like to hear a debate of the benefit the
clients get from this kind of practice vs psychotherapy.
