C. Rousseau, J. Guzder & Faculty

This workshop for mental health practitioners provides an overview of clinical models and methods in cultural psychiatry. Topics include: working with translators and culture brokers; attending to culture, ethnicity, racism and power in individual and family interventions with migrants and ethnocultural minorities; how cultural work transforms the therapist; ethical issues in intercultural work; strategies for working in different settings including schools, community organizations and refugee immigration boards. Invited lecturers will frame the basic issues of clinical intervention through the paradigms of cultural voices and languages of symptoms, art, and play.

The McGill Illness Narrative Interview (MINI)
D. Groleau

The McGill Illness Narrative Interview is a semi-structure protocol for eliciting information about illness experience that has been widely used in psychiatry, medicine and global health research. This workshop will present the theoretical basis of the MINI as a tool for qualitative health research. We will also cover the potential links with the concepts and values of Person-Centered Medicine. The workshop will discuss ways to adapt the MINI to study issues involving health behavior, bodily practices, illness, diseases, somatic and emotional symptoms. Participants will practice the MINI in one-to one interviews and learn ways to code and analyze qualitative data produced with the MINI.

Global Mental Health Research
D. Pedersen & Faculty

The seminar provides an introduction to key issues in global mental health (GMH) research with special reference to low and middle-income countries (LMICs). We will explore the tensions between a vertical public health approach, grounded in a biomedical frame and current evidence-based practices, and a horizontal community-based approach, that emphasizes local taxonomies and priorities, empowerment of local resources and endogenous solutions. The seminar will build a cultural critique of GMH and raise basic issues for discussion: (a) current priorities in GMH research have been largely framed by mental health professionals and their institutional partners based in Northern countries, reflecting the dominant interests of psychiatry and paying insufficient attention to Southern partners and local priorities; (b) the assumption in GMH that major psychiatric disorders are biologically determined and therefore universal; (c) the focus on existing evidence-based treatments, and the assumption that Western standard treatments can be readily applied across cultures with minimal adaptation; and (d) the emphasis on GMH interventions that may marginalize indigenous forms of healing and coping which may contribute to positive outcomes and recovery. The ultimate goal of this seminar is to outline a balanced critical perspective on GMH as a new field of enquiry and practice that acknowledges the importance of the social determinants of mental health and the interplay between the social and the cultural with the biological dimensions of mental health. The seminar will include lectures, panel presentations, case studies and plenary discussions of readings by faculty and students, supplemented by video documentaries and films.

Begins: May 8-29, 2015 (24 hours) F  09:00-12:30
Location: Room 101, Department of Social Studies of Medicine, 3647 Peel Street

Cultural Therapy: Dream-A-World Workshop

F. Hickling, G. Walcott, H. Hickling-Robertson, & J. Guzder

Dream-A-World Cultural Therapy is an innovative program to foster self-esteem, mental health and school performance among children. Originally developed for high-risk primary school children in inner city Kingston, Jamaica, the program has met with great success and is currently being scaled up in school districts across Jamaica. This workshop will familiarize participants with the philosophy and methods of Cultural Therapy by engaging in the process. Topics will include: a framework for collective behaviour change; using creative imagination to address attachment issues of childhood; creating a script and “culturing” the performance. The workshop will be videotaped for later presentation at the McGill ASI. All participants must sign a consent and intellectual property release form before the workshop. Participants should bring musical instruments of their choosing to the workshop.

[Limited to 20 participants with clinical/therapy backgrounds or equivalent]

Date: May 30-31, 2015 (15 hours) SSun  9:00-18:00

Indigenous Mental Health Research
L. Kirmayer, A. Bombay, J. Burack, E. Chachamovich, S. Dandeneau, S. Fraser, A. Laliberté, & C. Tait

This workshop will survey recent work on the social determinants of mental health and discuss issues in the design and implementation of culturally appropriate mixed-methods research with Indigenous communities and populations. The emphasis will be on conceptual issues and the development of research methodology to address both common and severe mental health problems and interventions. Specific topics will include: ethical issues in Indigenous health research; the role of Indigenous identity in mental health, resilience and well-being; suicide prevention and mental health promotion; visual methods in Aboriginal mental health research; evaluation of community-based mental health services; culturally adapted interventions; and Indigenous approaches to healing.

Use of Film in Cultural Psychiatry: Healing Inter-group Divisions Through Film
F. Lu

In a world marked by racial, ethnic and religious divisions, we desperately need to see each other again in a human way. Film can help us take this step. This workshop will explore one way to use film to foster intercultural understanding and healing. We will bring a mindfulness perspective to the experience of viewing 4 feature films (To Kill a Mockingbird, Bagdad Café, Freedom Writers, Invictus). We will learn to observe conscious and unconscious biases that divide people from each other and question how these biases might be transformed. The films all tell stories in which people are moved to consider compassion and collaboration rather than confrontation when engaging differences. One film will be shown in its entirety each morning and each afternoon of the 2-day workshop with a brief introduction and centering exercise to begin the session, and individual and group processing after the film. Processing will include silent reflection, journaling, dyadic sharing, and group discussion focused first on the participants’ experience of the film and then on how the film could be used in teaching cultural psychiatry.

Date: May 30-31, 2015, SSun  9:00-17:00
Location: Institute of Community & Family Psychiatry (Amphitheatre), 4333 Côte-Ste-Catherine Road, Montréal H3T 1E4

Critical Neuroscience 
S. Choudhury, I. Gold, L. Kirmayer & Faculty

This course provides an overview of current controversies surrounding cognitive neuroscience and the implications of recent advances in research for psychiatry, education, bioethics and health policy. It will present the interdisciplinary project of critical neuroscience as a framework and set of tools with which to critically analyze interpretations of neuroscience data in the academic literature, their representation in popular domains and more broadly, the growth of neurocultures since the Decade of the Brain. This course will problematize and consider alternatives to neurobiological reductionism in psychiatry, neuroethics, cultural neuroscience and neuropolicy, attending to the models, metaphors and political contexts of mainstream brain research. It will also explore various avenues for engagement between neuroscience, social science and humanities. Sessions will be devoted to: critical methods; methodological problems in neuroscience; cultural neuroscience, social determinants of health; psychiatry, neuroeducation; mindfulness; and neuroethics.
