Promoting cross-cultural correctional research

Culture, and language, which mostly enables one to learn about culture, equally become paramount when a person is under stress. Yet in a multilingual society where many cultures are present, the task of understanding each culture is difficult and to follow the nuances of the subcultures and their intricacies are almost too formidable to contemplate. No wonder, anyone working in that situation regularly faces an arduous barrier and mistakes are often made. When one is dealing with a person who is not well, specially in expressing his distress as in the case of someone who is mentally ill, the task is even harder. Many research shows how patients from a different culture end up having more compulsory admissions in mental hospitals.
