"Pat Bracken is a Consultant Psychiatrist and Clinical Director of Mental Health Services in West Cork, Ireland. He is also Professor of Philosophy, Diversity and Mental Health at the University of Central Lancashire in the UK. He trained in psychiatry and philosophy in Cork and in Birmingham. His interests include collaborating with user/survivors, developing critical thinking in psychiatry and working with asylum seekers and refugees." 

This talk will focus on how the current technical paradigm in mental health services underscores attempts to transfer interventions from Europe and North America to countries in the "developing world" and will critique this paradigm on philosophical, empirical and sociological grounds.

The Lecture will be recorded.
