3/19: Systemic Family Therapy and Global Mental Health: Reflections on Professional Development and Training

3/19: Systemic Family Therapy and Global Mental Health: Reflections on Professional Development and Training

March 19th, 2021, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM ET

Laurie L. Charlés and I will be on the AAMFT’s Podcast to discuss:

  • What’s Systemic Family Therapy within the global mental health (GMH) context?
  • How do we refrain from a one-sided, export-only focus of U.S./Western understandings of mental health?
  • Reflection on professional development and training from an anti-colonial perspective within the GMH context? Whose knowledge matters?
  • How do we shift our gaze towards low-resource communities without replicating imperialistic practices so prevalent in intervention efforts that cross borders?
  • And a lot more!

The AAMFT Podcast is the Spring 2021 series of interviews with the authors from the Handbook of Systemic Family Therapy, a ground-breaking reference work on both the profession and the practice of systemic family therapy. Registration is open now!
