The relevance of transcultural issues for medical practice, including psychiatry, is becoming more widely recognized. In view of the changing emphasis in medical education and the growth of medical practice, including psychiatry, is becoming more widely recognized. In view of the changing emphasis in medical education and growth of medical anthropology as a major sub-division, this book will bring together psychiatry and anthropology and focus on the implications of their interaction.
Written for those working in the mental health services, Anthropology Approaches to Psychological Medicine will extend the theory and practice of psychiatry. The theoretical chapters explore the culture of psychiatry. They reaffirm the importance of anthropology for understanding psychiatric practice and psychological disorders in both socio-historical and individual contexts. The development and use of psychiatric diagnostic categories, the nature of expressed emotion within cross-cultural contexts and the religious context of perception of pathological behavior are all refracted through an anthropological perspective. The second part of the book focuses on clinical applications: those aspects of medical anthropology which are helpful in everyday medical practice. These include; in particular, the establishing of cultural competence and examination of the new perspectives anthropological study can bring to schizophrenia and depression. The stigmatization of, mental illness is also analyzed anthropologically.
