This workshop will provide an introduction to the McGill Illness Narrative Interview (MINI), a semi-structured 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-on-one interviews and learn ways to code and analyze qualitative data produced with the MINI.

Text: Course readings will be available online.
Begins: May 12, 19 & 26, 2021 (9 hours) W  9:00-12:00

Global Mental Health Research
M. Ruiz-Casares & Faculty

This workshop introduces key issues in global mental health (GMH) research with special reference to low and middle-income countries. 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. This 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; (d) the emphasis on GMH interventions that may marginalize indigenous forms of healing and coping which may contribute to positive outcomes and recovery; and (e) the challenges and opportunities that result from different understandings of ethics stances and frameworks when conducting GMH research in the context of North-South collaborations. We will also consider issues that arise in forging and maintaining partnerships and self-care in GMH research. The workshop aims to provide a balanced critical perspective on GMH as a new field of enquiry and practice that acknowledges the importance of the socioeconomic and geopolitical determinants of mental health and the interplay between the social and the cultural with the biological dimensions of mental health. The format includes pre-recorded and live lectures, panel presentations, case studies and plenary discussions of readings by faculty and students.

Text: Readings will be available online.
Date: May 31-June 4, 2021 (20 hours) M•T•W•Th•F  09:00-13:30 + Video lectures

Art and Healing
J. Guzder & Guest Faculty

This workshop will focus on clinical, theoretical, research, and community engagement issues on the use of art in transcultural psychiatry. Invited faculty will elaborate on clinically relevant theory, creative arts practice and experiential learning on topics including: historical intersections of the arts and psychiatry; poiesis, improvisation and healing; theatre, music and embodiment; the psycho-historiographic group therapy approach; research methods and ethics; project development in global health contexts. Presentations will promote reflection on arts—including theatre, visual arts, music, and dance—as applied and emerging aspects of healing both historically and in contemporary contexts relevant to clinical practice and research in social and cultural psychiatry and global mental health. Faculty will include an international roster of clinicians from Brazil, Canada, India, Jamaica and the U.S., working with people with severe mental illness, youth at risk, immigrant and refugee groups, as well as Indigenous communities.

Date: June 7-11, 2021 (15 hours) M•T•W•Th•F  13:00-17:00

Culture, Mind and Brain
L. Kirmayer, S. Choudhury, S. Veissière & Faculty

Co-sponsored by the Foundation for Psychocultural Research (www.thefpr.org) and the McGill Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives Program (www.mcgill.ca/hbhl). This workshop will provide an overview of core topics and recent developments in social, and cultural neuroscience research in order to promote cross-disciplinary collaboration in global mental health. After an introduction to cognitive, social, and cultural neuroscience, the workshop will focus on the potential and limits of methods that can be used to measure epigenetic, neuroendocrine, and neurocognitive processes in laboratory and field settings. We will discuss the inter-relationships of these processes and how to map them onto phenomenological, ethnographic, and ecological variables to capture health-relevant aspects of sociocultural contexts in situ. Participants will have the opportunity to present their own research projects for discussion with faculty.

Indigenous Mental Health Research
L. Kirmayer & Guest Faculty

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.

Specific topics will include: ethical issues in Indigenous health research; social, historical and transgenerational determinants of mental health; the role of indigenous identity in mental health, resilience and well-being; suicide prevention and mental health promotion; participatory research methods; evaluation of community-based mental health services; culturally-adapted interventions; and indigenous approaches to wellness and healing.
