Over the past decade, cultural psychiatry has become an increasingly important branch of psychiatric research.
From the impact of cultural factors on causation, expression, and management of mental health disorders to the development and acceptance of cultural formulation in recent research, it is evident that cultures play a major role in both the genesis and management of psychiatric symptoms. Practical Cultural Psychiatry is a succinct, practical handbook focusing on the clinical impact culture has on mental health disorders worldwide.
Covering key topics on migration, racism, self-identity, and social networks, this resource offers practical advice on assessing, investigating, and managing psychiatric conditions.
The authors place particular focus on how clinicians can approach patients from different cultural backgrounds than their own to promote pathways to care andpatient experience.
Written by leading voices in this expanding field, Practical Cultural Psychiatry is a useful tool for all mental health clinicians wishing to improve their approach to multiculturalism and cultural identity in daily practice.
