- David Ingleby, Health and social care for migrants.
In the last 50 years all European countries have experienced an increase in the numbers of immigrants. Providing good health and social care to migrants and their families is a major challenge. The study of migrant health is an interdisciplinary topic, involving both social and medical sciences. Over the last decade, there has been a dramatic rise in attention to this topic, which comprises two main issues: (1) the state of health of migrants, (2) the changes that are necessary in the way health care is given. This talk will briefly describe some of the themes that are being studied and will try to explain why this topic is so important to all who work in health and social care.
David Ingleby is Professor of Intercultural Psychology at Utrecht University. At the moment he is involved in international networks concerned with teaching and research on health and social care for migrants and ethnic minorities.
- Sander Kramer, Cultural competence – what is it.
The concept of cultural competence has been used to identify the specific knowledge, attitudes and skills that are needed to make a professional “culturally sensitive”. This talk will describe different ideas about this concept, drawing on research that studies refugees, migrants and their interactions with therapists.
