The past two decades have been marked by dramatic social changes, widely characterized by the term “postmodern”. These major transformations have had profound and complex implications for psychiatry, influencing mental health risk factors, dynamics in clinical encounters, styles of help-seeking behavior and clinical outcomes. Underlying themes of postmodern thought that are particularly relevant to psychiatry include: individualization and social roles; the nature of self-identity and intimacy; future orientation (Whitley r. 2008).
