 Here is the link to an audio file of Dr Bracken’s talk.

The Institute of Health and Well-being would like to thank Dr Pat Bracken (Consultant Psychiatrist and Clinical Director of Mental Health Services in West Cork, Ireland) for delivering a talk at the University of Glasgow on the 29 January 2014 as part of the Global Mental Health Seminar Series organised by the MSc Global Mental Health programme. 

The talk – Post-psychiatry: Reaching beyond the technical paradigm of mental health care – focused on how the current technical paradigm in mental health services underscores attempts to transfer interventions from Europe and North America to countries in the ‘developing world’ and critiqued this paradigm on philosophical, empirical and sociological grounds.
