Abstract:
Childbearing is a universal phenomenon; however, postpartum practices and traditions vary widely across cultures and countries around the world. Until recent years, researchers concerned with postpartum adjustment, particularly postpartum depression, conducted studies primarily within industrialized countries. This paper is a description of an international study of postpartum depression symptoms within nine countries around the world that included Australia, Finland, Guyana, India, Italy, Korea, Sweden, Taiwan, and the United States. The research team composed of site investigators from each of the countries obtained both quantitative and qualitative data to compare prevalence rates, describe symptom patterns, and explore associated meanings within cultural and family contexts. The presenters will examine practical and methodologic problems faced in executing this project. The following issues are highlighted: using networking opportunities, developing the research team, bridging differences in technological capability, communicating with team members around the globe, maintaining consistency in method, interpreting data across cultural contexts, sharing findings, and providing professional opportunities and rewards for team members. Based on their experience, the presenters will offer problem-solving strategies, and approaches to promote team building and collaboration that have applicability to future international research studies.
