Upcoming ‘Psychology cultures’ seminar: Dr Nimisha Patel, ‘Beyond the clinic, beyond borders: A human rights based approach to psychological work in conflict and post-conflict contexts.’
The School of Psychology is very proud to announce that Nimisha Patel will be the next presenter for the ‘Psychology cultures’ seminars, which, as ever, are free of charge and open to all. The event is scheduled for 9th February, 2.30-430pm at the University of Leicester. To book a free place on this seminar please email Carl Gudgeon on firstname.lastname@example.org
The promotional blurb for this seminar reads: In the face of war, persecution, gross human rights violations and humanitarian crises, clinical psychologists may be eager to offer assistance, consultation, training and other expertise in low and middle income countries and to ‘work internationally’. The limitations and dangers of doing and exporting clinical psychology, in contexts of political, economic and social instability are explored, drawing on examples of work in a range of settings.
Dr Nimisha Patel is a Reader in Clinical Psychology at the University of East London. She is also the Director of the International Centre for Health and Human Rights. Nimisha has extensive clinical, research and policy development experience in the field of gross human rights violations including torture and gender-based violations in conflict. In 2011 the BPS gave her an Award for Distinguished Contributions to Professional Psychology.
