The expansion and maturation of the European Union over the past three decades has led to greater interaction and communication between the national populations that comprise the EU. It has also witnessed a much greater inflow of migrants from countries outside the EU. As the numbers of migrants from both European and other countries have increased, the national populations of many European countries have become steadily more culturally diverse. Migrants now comprise 10-20% of the national populations of many European countries. This new multiculturalism in European countries has opened up new fields of research and areas of clinical focus for psychiatry, psychotherapy and psychology in central Europe, as well as for sociology and ethnology.
Cultural Variations in Psychopathology
Edited By Sven Barnow and Azli Balkir
2012, Hogrefe, Göttingen
This is a book that is based on an international workshop at Heidelberg University, Germany, in 2010. The contributors on that workshop elaborated their lectures into well-written chapters.
This is a book every cultural psychiatrist should read. It covers almost the complete field of cultural psychiatry, and so it is a current update of the field.
Chronicles Volume One
Bob Dylan (2004) Simon and Schuster
Bob Dylan, songwriter, poet, and performer, has been the subject of multiple and often inaccurate interpretations. He has remained a very private man and his musical style has greatly changed over 40 years – contributing to his personal mystery. In Chronicles, he opens up a bit, but still remains guarded and enigmatic. But this is not to take away from a very good book (it has been a best seller and in the finals for a literary award) and the clear images that he does reveal.

La existencia de una técnica que considerase factores culturales en el tratamiento de la enfermedad mental y los cuadros emocionales en ella enraizados ya fue cogitada por Roger Bastide (1898-1974). Este libro comprueba que el autor hizo de esta teoría un desafío que encaró considerando también las experiencias de Henri-Collomb, precursor de la Etnopsiquiatria.
