Navigating Cultural Dilemmas in Early Psychosis


A guide designed to accompany and expand on the training video series Windows of Opportunity in Early Psychosis Care: Navigating Cultural Dilemmas. These videos and guide address dilemmas around three common cultural themes:

  • Religion and Spirituality
  • Family Relationships
  • Masculinity and Gender Constructs

The training videos are based on true stories of individuals with a first-episode psychosis (FEP) experience. They were created to offer specific examples of how providers can navigate common cultural dilemmas in early psychosis care, as well as how to embrace these dilemmas as opportunities to engage participants and their families more effectively. The dilemmas and best practices illustrated in these videos build on those described in the guide Delivering Culturally Competent Care in FEP. For more infomation, go to
