An HSSA Event: Cultural Differences in Psychotic Symptoms (Registration Required)

Friday, May 26, 2017 -
11:30am to 1:00pm


Tanya Marie Luhrmann is currently the Watkins University Professor in the Anthropology Department at Stanford University. She has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and has been the recipient of a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship.

Dr. Luhrmann found that voice-hearing experiences of people with serious psychotic disorders are shaped by local culture – in the United States, the voices are harsh and threatening; in Africa and India, they are more benign and playful. This may have clinical implications for how to treat people with schizophrenia, she suggests.

Join us in a fascinating talk with Dr. Luhrmann about her research and its importance to clinical work, research, and cultural competence!

Please visit Dr. Luhrmann's website for more information on her work.


The event will take place at Wisniewski Hall, Bldg 3, 3rd floor, Palo Alto University
