The Mind-Mapping approach (MMA): A culture and language "free" technique

Caroline M. Leaf, Isobel C. Uys, Brenda Louw
1993 South African Journal of Communication Disorders  
In this paper the need for language and culture "free" therapeutic techniques will be discussed.  ...  In the conclusion, it is suggested that global techniques such as the MMA, which are based on fundamental and universal principles, are the route to finding language and culture "free" techniques.  ...  Thus, stimulating a synergy between the two hemispheres is critical to effective accelerated learning.  ...
