Cultural Psychiatry: Euro-International Perspectives

Pedro Ruiz

Published: February 1, 2002

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

This volume is a part of the Bibliotheca Psychiatrica book series, which is edited by Bernd Saletu. Yilmaz is affiliated with the University of Kadir Has in Istanbul, Turkey, and Weiss and Riecher-Rössler are affiliated with the University of Basel in Basel, Switzerland. This book grew out of the conference "Transcultural Psychiatry: Challenges for Diagnosis and Treatment," which was held in March 1998 in Basel, Switzerland. Most of the authors of the chapters in this book were presenters in this conference. Additionally, a few selected authors were invited in order to fully reflect the emphasis of this book on cultural perspectives from Switzerland, Europe as a whole, and beyond Europe.

Some JCP and PCC articles are available in PDF format only. Please click the PDF link at the top of this page to access the full text.
