Overview

Presents insightful, practical guidelines to the mental health practitioner who provides mental health care for clients of differing ethnocultural backgrounds. Focuses on the clinical implications of assessment, evaluation for treatment, and mental health care for culturally different populations. Emphasizes care of the patient in the framework of that person's culture rather than the framework of the therapist, indicating specific clinical approaches most appropriate to clients from these minority groups. Examines ethnosociocultural factors such as ethnicity, family values, language, religion, race, political ideology, cultural expectations, etc., which are relevant to cross-cultural mental health. Discusses treatment approaches for six major groups of minorities in the U.S., offering especially thorough consideration of Black American and Caribbean cultural issues.
