This workshop will detail an important and increasingly influential new framework for addressing stigma in clinical practice. Structural competency shifts the focus away from approaches to stigma and inequalities that emphasize cross-cultural understandings of individual patients, toward attention to forces that influence health outcomes at levels above individual interactions. The workshop will review existing structural approaches to stigma and health inequalities developed outside of medicine, and proposes changes to U.S. medical education and clinical practice that will infuse clinical training…

Structural Competency: A New Paradigm for Addressing Race and Racisms in Medicine – Chicago, IL

The "cultural competency" approach and other medical models that emphasize cross-cultural understanding of patients are limited. Many health-related factors previously attributed to culture or ethnicity in interactions between doctors and patients also represent the downstream consequences of decisions about larger structural contexts, such as impoverished transit or food delivery systems, oppressive zoning decisions, or the pernicious effects of institutional racisms. This talk will focus on how the "structural competency" model and movement offers a new paradigm and approach to healthcare that can address the biological, socioeconomic, and racial impacts of upstream decisions on structural factors such as expanding health and wealth disparities.

American Studies Association, Denver, Colorado On June 1, 2015, Governor of Texas Greg Abbott signed into law S.B. 11, also known as the "campus carry" law. The issue of guns in the culture at large is not a new one, and the gun control debate has been further stoked by #blacklivesmatter and the occupation of a federal building by ranchers in Oregon.

Changing the Terms of Debate about Gun Violence: Mental Illness, Mass Shootings, and the Politics of American Firearms

December 1, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Texas A&M University – MSC Ballroom, Room 2300E, 275 Joe Routt Boulevard, Room 2300E

Four assumptions frequently arise in the aftermath of mass shootings in the United States: (1) that mental illness causes gun violence, (2) that psychiatric diagnosis can predict gun crime, (3) that shootings represent the deranged acts of mentally ill loners, and (4) that gun control “won’t prevent” such incidents. Professor Metzl will address how assumptions about gun violence incorrectly link to stereotypes of mental illness and race in the United States. These issues become obscured when mass shootings come to stand in for all gun crime, and when “mentally ill” ceases to be a medical designation and becomes a sign of violent threat. Professor Metzl will also discuss how and why gun violence is a pertinent topic for the growing field of Health Humanities.

Mental Illness, Mass Shootings, and the Politics of American Firearms: Changing the Terms of the Debate

May 2 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Toland Hall Auditorium, 533 Parnassus Avenue, room 142
San Francisco, CA 94143 United States

Four assumptions frequently arise in the aftermath of mass shootings in the US: (1) that mental illness causes gun violence, (2) that psychiatric diagnosis can predict gun crime, (3) that shootings represent the deranged acts of mentally ill loners, and (4) that effective gun control laws will not prevent such incidents. Professor Metzl will discuss how these assumptions about gun violence are incorrectly linked to stereotypes of mental illness and race in the United States. These issues become obscured when mass shootings are framed as representative of all gun crime, and when “mentally ill” ceases to be a medical designation and becomes encoded as violent threat.
