Textbook of Cultural Psychiatry

Cultural psychiatry is concerned with understanding the impact of social and cultural differences and similarities on mental illness and its treatments.

A person’s cultural characteristics can often lead to misunderstandings, influenced by language, non-verbal styles, codes of etiquette and assumptions. There may also be perceived misconceptions and differences in beliefs and values. In order to provide appropriate, sensitive and acceptable services for different cultural groups, all service providers need to take these factors into account.

Written by leading clinicians and academics from around the world, and integrating both practical and theoretical knowledge, the Textbook of Cultural Psychiatry provides a framework for the provision of mental healthcare in a multi-cultural/multi-racial society and global economy.

It will be essential reading for those providing mental healthcare, or who are involved in the organisation and management of services.

Dinesh Bhugra is Professor of Mental Health and Cultural Diversity, at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London.

Kamaldeep Bhui is Professor of Cultural Psychiatry and Epidemiology, at Barts and the London, Queen Mary School of Medicine and Dentistry.
