In what ways and to what extent are our ways of thinking about the past culturally conditioned?
Forgetting and repressing selective memory.
How does cultural diversity influence health and well-being?
Mental health culture:
Differences in concepts of MH
Relativity in defining the mentally ill
Approaches to the treatment of the mentally ill
Art + Health - the organisation "escape" recommended by chronic fatigue clinic and for other chronic conditions – has been a great help in coping with illness – i.e. the working together of medicine + Arts.
