Responses to change and migration: Grounding global mental health
“Re-organizing the clinic: Beyond culture and migration as pathology producing”
Rachid Bennegadi
Grounding global mental health entails acknowledging that migration and
asylum dynamics constitute social determinants, among many, which shape
individual responses to distress.
As a psychiatrist and anthropologist, how do I integrate dynamics of
change and migration and their impact on patients as individual strategies
resulting in individual adaptations?
This presentation aims at proposing concrete clinical tools to mobilize the
relationship between culture and psychiatry within a systemic approach,
and to provide a healthcare response that is most adequate to the patient’s
demand.
