Idioms of distress: Wellbeing and mental resilience in displaced peoples, refugee populations and global mental health

2019 De Carle Distinguished Lecture

Lecture seven: Professor Alison Phipps, UNESCO Chair in Refugee Integration through Languages and the Arts (University of Glasgow)

This lecture will present work from four contexts internationally where psychotherapeutic access to trauma services is non-existent but other resources are marshalled by affected populations – Ghana, Gaza, Uganda, Zimbabwe. Focusing on migratory languages and arts it demonstrates how Global Mental Health frameworks may be expanded.
