The Promise of Psychosocial Therapies for Use with Immigrant, Refugee, Ethno-Cultural and Racialized Populations

Andrew Tuck

Abstract

Psychotherapies are a fundamental part of mental healthcare. These have been shown to be effective treatments for a wide range of mental disorders, from anxiety and depression to psychoses such as schizophrenia. However, there is evidence that the effectiveness of psychotherapies may vary, and these may need to be adapted to work optimally for different cultural groups. In addition, some diagnoses that are more common in refugee populations may require specific interventions. This paper examines the effectiveness of psychotherapeutic techniques for immigrant, refugee, ethno-cultural and racialized populations.
