CBT formulations of culture bound anxiety and depression disorders: Health Citys workshop
Those of us who have read resources such as Mental Health, Race and Culture by Professor Suman Fernando (2010) would agree that a good understanding of a patients cultural background and active beliefs linked to their health condition could enhance a better treatment outcome. This training looks at how practitioners of psychological therapies and psychosocial care may develop the skills to understand treatment of culture-bound depression and anxiety disorders for the benefits of patients. This training is very practical using case studies and practising this approach in groups.
What the workshop covers:
- Revisiting the understanding of culture, ethnicity, and race as they relate to mental health and CBT.
- Cognitions related to ethnicity, culture and race.
- Cultural competencies.
- Culture bound syndromes/disorders.
- Applications to CBT-cultural approaches to formulating depression and anxiety disorders.
