The multidisciplinary Research Group Transcultural Psychiatry is integrated into the Center for Cross-Cultural Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Supervision.
The interlocking of scientific and humanistic approaches as well as the connection of quantitative and qualitative research methods are the basis of our perspective on critical reflection and adequate research. This also includes a critical discussion of the concepts, terms and definitions used in this area of research, such as culture, "race", ethnicity, migrants, people with a migrant background, intercultural opening, cross-cultural competence, acculturation/integration etc. as well as a discussion about tendencies of culturalization, stereotyping and deficit perspective.
In collaboration with the Research Group on Migration and Health Care we do research on social inequality and discrimination and transcultural approaches in public health research.
