ANT 4020 - Multicultural Health, Illness & Healing


Credit(s): 3

This course provides an understanding of the complex interrelationships between cultural, biological, psychological and environmental components of health, disease, illness and medical treatment. Some topics include medical explanatory beliefs, adaptation, stress, illness experiences, healing techniques, patient/practitioner relations and religion. Western biomedicine and many other medical systems of the world are compared searching for cultural diversity and universals. The variety of cases studied and the perspectives used ranges from the single individual, to diverse groups, to the entire global population. Students apply anthropology and other disciplines to the experience of being sick and to the delivery of health care in many different cultures.
