Watch the Webinar – Therapeutic Cultures: A View from Latin America

June 7, 2023 969

Join the authors of the new book Beyond Therapeutic Culture in Latin America: Hybrid Networks in Argentina and Brazil as they examine the global phenomenon of ‘therapeutic culture’ through the experiences of Latin America in this free webinar. Drawn from original research conducted in the region, Beyond Therapeutic Culture in Latin America extends the idea of the therapeutic beyond the classroom to encompass a diversity of practices, both “secular” and “religious,” “modern” and “traditional,” that are deemed as therapeutic by the actors involved. Expect to learn lessons specifically about Latin America but that offer insights for understanding therapeutic cultures everywhere.

The authors of the book, Piroska E. Csúri, Mariano B. Plotkin, and Nicolás Viotti are joined by two editors of the Therapeutic Cultures book series, Edgar Cabanas and Daniel Nehring. The publisher of the book is offering a 20 percent discount (access flyer here) for webinar viewers.

The webinar, which occurred on June 7, 2023, is sponsored by Social Science Space.
