Overview

Mental health professionals working with children are often faced with a number of obstacles from determining the situation specificity of the problem behavior to ascertaining the influence of the child's developmental level. When the clients are minority children, the clinical challenge is often compounded: Clinicians must move beyond the limitations of traditional assessment, diagnostic, and treatment approaches and learn how to determine the impact of cultural differences, poverty, discrimination, and acculturation issues. Addressing each of these elements, this important new volume shows mental health service providers how to work with economically disadvantaged children and adolescents from culturally diverse backgrounds. The book concentrates on the mental health needs of primarily those African-American, Latino, Asian-American, and American Indian children who are subject to numerous social stressors and whose families represent the lower socioeconomic levels. Chapters provide useful theoretical constructs, suggest concrete ways to interpret assessments, and outline effective treatment approaches. Illustrated with numerous clinical vignettes, the book clearly describes how to elicit relevant history from the child, caretakers, family, and school officials; utilize diagnostic criteria in a culturally appropriate way; and intervene - using innovative treatment strategies. Throughout, long-standing misconceptions and myths are exposed, as readers acquire the skills needed to recognize and reinforce the strengths that often exist amid what can look like insurmountable problems. Comprehensively addressing the wide range of issues one encounters in the treatment of minority children, this book is a valuable resource for psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and psychiatric nurses. Providing explicit, step-by-step details on the assessment and treatment of minority children Culturally Diverse Children and Adolescents also serves as an excellent text for

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Abigail B. Sivan, PhD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book creates guidelines for working with minority group children and adolescents in mental health settings. Using many clinical vignettes, the authors illustrate the importance of cultural differences in the diagnosis and treatment of young people.
Purpose: The purpose is to improve the mental health services offered to ethnically and culturally different children and adolescents. The authors offer concrete suggestions for interviewing, diagnosing, and intervening with these children and their caretakers. Guidance is needed in this area because mental health clinics are full of children from backgrounds very different from those attempting to help them.
Audience: The intended audience is community-based practitioners. The book is also useful for teachers and advanced students working in practicum settings. The authors are well suited to the task because they themselves are responsible for training programs at major urban medical centers.
Features: The book has an attractive cover and easy-to-read print. There are no illustrations; the case examples are numerous, brief, and relevant and they too contribute to the book's readability. The references include many useful but recently neglected articles on cultural differences and mental health. An updated section on psychological testing and academic assessment would be a useful addition.
Assessment: Writing a book on cultural diversity is a risky undertaking, which often trivializes the very differences about which it intends to sensitize. These authors succeed in their mission, offering practical and sensible guidelines for considering cultural issues in assessment and treatment. This is a valuable book for training programs and an informative book for those practitioners already involved in the mental health treatment of minority children and adolescents.
