Johanna Maccioni Researcher Profile

Johanna MaccioniJohanna Maccioni is a a clinical psychologist in Brussels, Belgium. After 5 years study in psychology, she obtained a D.E.S. (Diplôme d’Etude Spécialisé) in adult psychotherapy and passed the “Agregation” (which enables her to teach within universities). She worked in hospitals in oncology and other units for ten years (in Belgium and in Martinique-France). For four years at Brugmann Hospital, she coordinated a project funded by the Belgian National Cancer Plan to improve migrants’ hospital care. In 2010, this project won the Gert Noel prize from the Belgian King Baudouin Foundation (the foundation supports justice, democracy and diversity in society), and this project inspired other units in other hospitals. After that, Maccioni began teaching Social Psychology, Intercultural Psychology, Group Dynamics and Clinical Systemic Therapy at the Haute Ecole Leonard de Vinci, a school specializing in paramedical training. As of September 2015, she is teaching a course on “Interculturalism in Health” (this is the second course on the subject offered in Belgium, after “Health and Culture” given by Dr. Louis Ferrand in Anvers University for doctors). She also trains doctors and paramedics who are currently working on this subject. In addition, she participates in a group project on how to improve migrants’ hospital care, organized by the Interfederal Center for Equal Opportunities (UNI-A: Centre Interfédéral pour l’Egalité des Chances, a public institution fighting discrimination).
