Therapy Beyond Our Backyard: Internationalizing Mental Health Treatment

Thursday, Mar. 22, 2018 – Thursday, Mar. 22, 2018

07:00 PM – 08:30 PM


The development of psychology by European scholars in the nineteenth century is often considered the beginning of legitimate mental health treatment. What do we lose or overlook with this Western-centric point of view? In this lecture, we will explore beyond the boundaries of Western psychology, not to override these important contributions, but to expand upon what is considered effective treatment. With a broader, more global understanding of the history and practice of psychology, we can provide more effective treatment, particularly to culturally diverse populations.
