Upcoming Talk: “Bounding and Scaling: Allocating Psychiatric Care in France and the United States”, Oct 14

Join us for a special talk with Alex Barnard, PhD, Assistant Professor of Sociology at NYU,  on Friday, October 14 from 1-2pm PST. Modern mental health systems face simultaneous pressures to expand treatment to new populations (often referred to as “medicalization”) and to control costs (through techniques of “rationalization”). Dr. Barnard will compare how these trends shape who receives treatment in the public mental health system in France and the United States, drawing on ethnographic observations of a clinic in Paris and California, over three-hundred-fifty qualitative interviews, and archival materials.
