Research Interests
Culture and mental health

  • After obtaining my Ph.D. in Psychology, I went on to pursue post-doctoral training (with a M.Sc.) in Social and Cultural Psychiatry at the Department of Psychiatry, McGill University in Canada.

    My research focuses on the relationship between culture and mental health, particularly, indigenous healing systems, culture and psychotherapies, cultural psychopathology, cultural syndromes, health beliefs, cultural neuro-phenomenology, and embodiment. My current projects investigate the relevance of indigenous healing systems to mental health and psychotherapy, and the cultural neuro-phenomenology of ritual healing.
