         Culture, Communication, Meaning & Understanding

Tutors: Natalie Tobert PhD, Medical Anthropologist
Dr Liz Archer, Brighton GP

4th November 4-6pm
 The Body  Cross cultural knowledge and beliefs about the body, its properties and faculties.  Variable theories of illness causation and cultural issues concerning communication between practitioner & client, which may influence uptake & acceptance of treatment

11th November 4-6pm
 Conception and Birth Cross cultural explanatory models for conception, birth, self and identity, and their relevance for communication with practitioners in medical & healthcare settings

 18th November 4-6pm
 Religious experience & Mental health  Cultural explanatory models for mental distress and religious experience. Health seeking strategies for conditions which may attract psychiatric attention.  Communication issues which may inhibit access to statutory services.

25th November 4-6pm
 Death, Dying & Beyond Concepts of good and bad death. Meaning & purpose in living and dying. Beliefs about what happens to consciousness after death, and the relevance for the living, of cultural understanding and communication in medical & health care practice


The learning will be interactive, participatory and reflective.  The course has been developed to inform contemporary clinical practice and enhance cross cultural literacy.  The underlying assumption is that when there is concordance of understanding between practitioner and client, with coherent communication, there is a greater opportunity for healing and access to treatment options. The course is intended to complement current approaches of medicine and health care, by addressing communication issues and potentials for missed understanding that may occur within therapeutic environments.
