Rozeen Marjieh

“The Challenges and Dilemmas facing mental health care activists
during the last assault on Gaza
(and the violent responses to protest in other parts of Palestine)”

Rozeen Marjieh, educational psychologist and mental health care activist, member Palestine Global Mental Health Network.

Drawing on her experiences in responding to the impact of recent events on the psychological well-being of children and teachers in particular, Rozeen will describe some of the novel community initiatives undertaken by Palestinian mental health workers in response to the May crisis.

She will question whether mainstream psychological models of care are appropriate and helpful in meeting the needs of the Palestinian community, arguing the need to model our work instead on the teachings of liberation psychology. Giving examples from her work within 48 Palestine, she will address questions of normality and abnormality, oppression and depression, and the the need to support feelings of agency.

The Cafe will open with live music at 3.45pm (UK time) / 5.45pm (Pal time)
The discussion will start at 4.00pm (UK) / 6.00pm (Palestine)
The whole event is expected to finish at about 5.30pm (UK) / 7.30pm (Palestine)
