Brief Description of Work: Our latest publications are on the translational disciplinary validity of the evaluation methods and categories in mental health and the introduction of a model for comprehensive assessment of the vulnerability to burn out syndrome in health care personnel. We are more specifically interested in cultural values and controversies as well as in logic of practice and phenomenological psychopathology. An emphasis in our current research is on the application of the “squeaky wheel” principle to situations emerging from cultural pluralism.
