Cross-cultural psychiatry

A subspecialty of psychology called "cross-cultural psychiatry" looks at how cultural and racial factors influence mental illness and access to psychiatric care. The study of migratory populations and ethnic variety within countries, analysis of psychiatry itself as a cultural product, and surveys of the prevalence and types of disorders in other cultures or countries all contributed to the development of this profession as a whole. Early literature was linked to colonialism and was accused of either ignoring or demeaning other cultures and ethnic groups.

Several crucial fields of research include:

  • Emotions
  • Language acquisition
  • Child development
  • Personality
  • Social behavior
  • Family and social relationships
