Joseba Achotegui psiquiatra

“Psychological help should not seek to normalise the person, but to free them from everything that makes it difficult for them to find their own way, as well as from the impediments that mental disorders cause.”

“Today, for millions of people, the levels of stress associated with emigrating have reached such levels that they inhibit the ability of humans to adapt to the process. These people suffer the risk of Chronic and Multiple Stress Immigrant Syndrome or Ulysses Syndrome, the latter refers to the Greek hero who suffered innumerable adversities and dangers far from his loved ones.”

Joseba Achotegui is a psychiatrist and professor of psychotherapy techniques at the University of Barcelona. Specialist in mental health and migration, community mental health, evolutionary psychology and psychotherapy. He has been secretary of the Transcultural Section of the World Psychiatric Association. Author of several books and habitual writer of a blog in the newspaper Público.
