Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Anxiety is a key conceptual concept for mental disorder in its psychological, biological, and social aspects and causes. The impact of cultural setting for anxiety disorders has clear treatment consequences. This groundbreaking book thoroughly addresses this problem." --Donald F. Klein, MD, New York State Psychiatric Institute

"One of the more important developments in the delivery of mental health services in recent years is the establishment of psychosocial interventions with empirical support for a number of major disorders. In few areas has as much progress been made as in the anxiety disorders. But research on the efficacy of new treatments has told us little about the generalizability of these effects, particularly across cultures. Now, for the first time, Steven Friedman's new book presents the latest information on disseminating effective psychosocial treatments across the major cultural subgroups in North America. The varieties of strategies and considerations clinicians face when dealing with cultural subgroups are described by expert clinicians with years of experience. No clinician or clinical researcher treating anxiety disorders should be without this important book." --David H. Barlow, PhD, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, Boston University

"This book comprehensively reviews critical issues that are crucially relevant in the care of practically all patients living in our increasingly diverse, increasingly multi-ethnic, multicultural societies. It is scholarly, well-organized, and state of the art. The discussion on the epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment of anxiety-related conditions in different ethnic groups is theoretically grounded, data based and with a high level of clinical relevance. This book is highly recommended not only for researchers and students interested in cultural psychiatry, but also for the majority of clinicians who are increasingly confronted with patients with divergent ethnic and cultural backgrounds on a daily basis." --Keh-Ming Lin, MD, MPH, Professor of Psychiatry, UCLA School of Medicine, Director, NIMH/Harbor-UCLA Research Center on the Psychobiology of Ethnicity
