The American Corner at AUK: ARAB AMERICANS AND MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES

The American University of Kuwait's American Corner held a lecture titled "Arab Americans and Mental Health Issues" on Tuesday, May 11, from 12-1 pm at the AUK Library. Increasing the individuals understanding of the interplay of mental health issues and culture is critical to enhancing one's sense of identity, as well as essential to promoting self growth. The lecture provided students and community members with the opportunity to gain knowledge from two psychologists, Dr. Juliet Dinkha and Dr. Nisrine Aboul Hosson, who are specialized in working with diverse populations.

Dr. Dinkha and Dr. Aboul-Hosson highlighted important aspects in the field of clinical psychology, shedding light on the role of clinical psychologists, the differences between psychologists and psychiatrists, and the importance of cultural sensitivity when providing psychotherapy.
