SHERPA collaborated on a series of webinars on global mental health. Violent Radicalization: The Dilemmas of Prevention and Intervention.
Radicalization leading to violence is a global social phenomenon affecting both majority and minority groups with significant consequences on individual and collective well-being. This may be related to mental health issues in multiple ways – not just because psychological and psychopathological factors are crucial for radicalization leading to violence, but also because psychological distress, grief and trauma are important public health consequences of this form of violence, which can also feed off rage and despair.
Speaker: Dr. Cécile Rousseau, Professor of Psychiatry at McGill University and Scientific Director of the SHERPA Institute for Health Research on Ethnocultural Diversity.
