Editorial Reviews

Danise Hoover
"This is a timely and useful volume that has value for students and professionals alike. It would fit well in the collections of academic and large public libraries where multiculturalism is a topic of concern. "
V. Viator
"Useful statistics are included for many entries. The presentation and writing format are clear. This will be a valuable book for a wide variety of readers interested in multicultural psychology. Comprehensive index. Highly recommended. "
Mary C. Burke
"Those working in a counseling relationship with members of various underrepresented cultural groups in the United States will find the encyclopedia particularly useful. There are numerous entries that either directly or indirectly address issues of clinical relevance. For example, some of the topics covered in the Psychopathology and Treatment categories include depression, anxiety, alcohol/substance use and abuse, help-seeking behavior, family therapy, indigenous treatments and healers, psychopharmacology, and multicultural competencies. The text also attends to psychopathology or psychological distress as it is understood, experienced, and measured from different cultural perspectives.This encyclopedia is a meaningful contribution to the field of multicultural psychology. Jackson and her colleagues offer an authoritative synthesis of the important work that has been done to advance sensitivity and understanding of the rich cultural diversity that characterizes the United States.
