Recent data, however, indicate that the realities in service delivery do not mirror this. Cross-cultural Psychiatry provides a practical guide for mental health professionals to 1) recognize culture specific differences in presentation within clinical settings; 2) understand differing idioms of stress and distress and accord them ...

Overview

Within our increasingly diverse society, the needs of patients from other cultures, especially the minority ethnic groups, are being recognized at local and international levels. Recent data, however, indicate that the realities in service delivery do not mirror this. Cross-cultural Psychiatry provides a practical guide for mental health professionals to 1) recognize culture specific differences in presentation within clinical settings; 2) understand differing idioms of stress and distress and accord them appropriate prominence; and 3) thereby improve the delivery of services, their acceptance by individuals, and the overall quality of care. Focusing on clinical skills, and drawing on case studies in actual practice, this invaluable guide shows how best to develop traditional clinical practice for today's cross-cultural client.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nishad J. Nadkarni, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book serves to introduce concepts of cross-cultural psychiatry to mental health clinicians in an easy-to-understand, general format.
Purpose: In today's multicultural society, it is important for clinicians to have a strong understanding of transcultural psychiatry as not merely a collection of exotic culture-bound syndromes, but as relevant in placing a valence on such common disorders as depression. This change of perspective reflects recent trends in immigration and the increase in those seeking mental health services.
Audience: Mental health practitioners, both medically and nonmedically trained, will find this book of great use. In addition, given training requirements in this area of mental health, this book is a must-read for trainees.
Features: The subject of transcultural psychiatry is divided into several broad areas of concern, including initial diagnosis and the cultural expression of symptoms, treatment both pharmacologically as well as psychotherapeutically and cultural differences in response, and finally training issues. The material is supported by numerous excellent schematics, flowcharts, and summary boxes in each chapter. A minor shortcoming of this book is the exclusion of a thorough reference list.
Assessment: Though small in size, this book is dense on information, and serves as an excellent introduction to the area of transcultural psychiatry. Specifically it emphasizes the shift in thinking about this area in terms of more relevant and clinically important cultural valences attached to common psychiatric disorders. It is important reading for trainees as well as established practitioners in a multicultural society.
From The Critics
Practical guidance is provided for mental health professionals on how to recognize culture-specific differences in presentation within clinical settings, understand differing idioms of stress and distress, and improve the delivery of services, their acceptance by patients, and the overall quality of care when working with cross-cultural clients. Bhugra is senior lecturer in psychiatry at the Institute of Psychiatry, London. Bhui is senior lecturer in social and epidemiological psychiatry at St. Bartholomew's & Royal London Medical and Dental School, London. The book is distributed in the US by Oxford University Press.
