Program

The course starts from the history of Ethno-psychiatry, considering the different impications belonging to organic solidarity care groups (primitive societies) and to sectorial and individual group society (Western models), to reach contemporary Western pathologies (eg, anorexia, bulimia, addictions and delusional ties) in an attempt to identify meaningful differences in express a diseases in different cultural areas. The migratory path is studied and related to emotional suffering; the problem of abandoned children and the problem of integration as a model for psychic functions. Therefore are taken into account the relationships between culture, health systems and expression of discomfort. The treatment and support for health workers's mind are studied . In the course we'll try to experience through groups the meeting with unknown states of mind. In particular it is also addressed the difference between the concept of the group and the concept of ethnic group. We will study the concept of ethnic disorder, organization of containers ( family, social , cultural ) and their relationship with the  individual ; we will study the concept of group and  the individual \group relationship .
