Professor Ashraf Kagee, Brief Bio:

Kagee received his PhD in Counselling Psychology from Ball State University. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and a Masters degree in Public Health at the University of Cape Town. His work is broadly located at the nexus of psychology and public health and is specifically focused on mental health among persons living with HIV and psychological and structural factors influencing adherence to antiretroviral therapy (ART). His work currently involves training patient advocates in providing psychosocial support to ART and in testing models of problem solving aimed at helping patients overcome structural barriers to ART adherence. His other interests include stress and trauma, mental health and chronic illness, and evidence-based practice and scientific thinking in psychology. He currently serves on a working group of the World Health Organisation to decide on diagnostic criteria for stress-related disorders for the forthcoming edition of the International Classification of Diseases. He has published in a wide variety of journals including Global Public Health, Social Science and Medicine, and Transcultural Psychiatry.
