Adil Qureshi grew up in Edmonton, in western Canada. He pursued master’s degrees in existential phenomenological psychology at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh and in psychological counseling at Columbia University in New York. He then completed his PhD in counseling psychology at the University of Southern California where he developed a hermeneutic approach to cross-cultural psychology in his dissertation. Since 2002 he has worked in the Transcultural Psychiatry Program at the Vall d'Hebron University Hospital, where he carries out clinical work, supervision, research, and training in areas related to migration and mental health. He was Project Coordinator of the Barcelona site of a NIDA funded grant [the International Latino Research Project, which had as its primary focus a clinical trial for dually diagnosed Latin American Immigrants in Barcelona, Boston, and Madrid]. His team was awarded a European Union grant focused on the mental health needs of unaccompanied minor refugees. Adil has been actively involved in the development of models of cultural competence in mental health care, which he has implemented in the training of healthcare professionals in a variety of contexts, including an online continuing education training program in Spain and across the world through the World Psychiatric Association. He has been teaching psychology classes to study abroad students since 2007 and rather enjoys the experience. Improvement of diversity related issues is a keen interest of his, and he is currently working on means by which to reduce the negative impact of racial prejudice.
