CULTURE AFFECTS EVERY ASPECT OF CLINICAL CARE
This conference brings together the world of cultural psychiatry — psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, and others in mental health, anthropology, history, and social science colleagues from around the world — to share how best to implement a culture-focused approach in mental health practice. We aim to overcome health and healthcare disparities and promote global mental health equity in access, engagement, and quality of care for diverse populations.


III World Congress, London 2012

World Congress Overview
This conference focuses on the work of individuals and groups from around the world who are applying cultural psychiatry principles and practices in their daily activities across a broad range of mental health-related responsibilities.  In the face of time, knowledge, and financial constraints, we strive to make cultural psychiatry count.

The World Congress convenes clinicians, administrators, researchers, educators, policymakers, consumers, and advocates to share their expertise and experience as well as their challenges and solutions in a frank and productive international exchange.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
Best practices for disparity reduction in mental health
Building trust, therapeutic alliance, and treatment negotiation across cultures
Local adaptation of evidence-based practices
Financing of culture-focused approaches
Implementation of inclusive definitions of culture that encompass multiple aspects of identity
Engaging policymakers to address mental health needs in low-income settings
Role of consumer peers in cultural competence services
Innovative training methods in culture-focused care
Brief cultural assessment in high-demand settings
Implementation of culture-related information in treatment planning
Advantages and limitations of task-shifting in low-resource settings
Collaboration with community healers and helpers
