Transcultural research in mental health by William P Lebra( Book )

10 editions published in 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume collects papers presented at a 1969 conference, "Social Change and Cultural Factors in Mental Health," held at the University of Hawaii's East-West Center. Editor Lebra succinctly sums up the two themes of the collected papers: (1) in underdeveloped regions, discover the prevalence of mental health disorders and, (2) in "more developed areas," understand and control ourselves before irreparable damage is done to mankind. The volume represents an admirable attempt at cross-disciplinary, cross-cultural communication--no mean undertaking. It will undoubtedly constitute a major source in its field, and is likely to be consulted by specialists in medicine and behavioral science alike. In this regard, editor Lebra, the conference participants, and the East-West Center have made a valuable contribution to our cross-cultural understanding of "psychiatric epidemiology."

Mental health research in Asia and the Pacific by William A Caudill( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the result of a conference on mental health research in Asia and the Pacific held at the East-West Center, University of Hawaii, in 1966, at which a distinguished multidisciplinary group of investigators from Australasia, Europe, and North America explored such questions as how Asian countries had made use of Western psychiatric theories and techniques to understand similarities and differences in behavior in cross-cultural settings, as well as attempted to reach some agreement on common denominators in human behavior regardless of cultural differences. The editors, Dr. William Caudill, a social anthropologist, and Dr. Tsung-yi Lin, a psychiatric epidemiologist, both of whom participated in the conference, have done an admirable job of organizing the work of their colleagues (and keeping their opinions from intruding) into three topical sections which present the proceedings and discussion in such a way as to be most helpful and economical to the reader
