Can research be universally applied? That’s what we tend to try and do. However, Bruno Falissard addresses universalism and the caution we must take when applying it to child and adolescent psychiatry. He takes inspiration from two ECAP articles this month that pools data from different cultural settings and amalgamates into generic findings, just as many international studies do. But what can you take from these and other studies? Can you translate these findings to your own culture?

Falissard takes us on a journey, by making everything universal; we are humans, we are identical, we are a number, a statistic, but we are also different! How can we use the universal nature of these studies and apply their findings to the very different cases we see in child and adolescent psychiatry? Falissard states “we have just to be aware of it because there is a temptation to consider clinical situations as being universal, which would make obviously life easier for all of us…. there is a need for clinicians to be aware of the main cultural specificities of their patients and their patient’s families”.
