Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Deborah L. Garrelts, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book is a description of society's view of minorities and the influence these views may have on care professionals working in psychiatric and criminal justice systems. The editors identify and provide suggested techniques and approaches to improve the care and treatment provided by healthcare providers.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide essential information and analysis of society's view of minorities and the influence they have in the care provided in the psychiatric and criminal justice system, and to identify ways to improve care and treatment to individuals of different cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds.
Audience: This is targeted especially for psychiatrists and healthcare professionals.
Features: Numerous cultural photographs are included, as are graphs to illustrate the ethnic breakdown of various populations (i.e., with mental illness) and an appendix with multiple Audit Protocols which outline the processes to be taken to respond appropriately to the differing individual, social, cultural, and religious needs of patients. The various chapters are written by individuals experienced in working with minority patients or who have a special interest in the issues relating to ethnic minority patients in the mental health system.
Assessment: This book is useful and timely in light of the need for healthcare professionals to be more sensitive to the diverse patient population that exists today. For psychiatrists and healthcare professionals it is important to be knowledgeable about various cultural and religious beliefs since these factors play an important role in a patient's life and can help practitioners meet the needs of their patients.

Professionals from psychiatry, religion, criminal justice, and law and patients themselves explore the intersection of difference among people, psychiatric care, and criminal justice. Considering core issues such as culture, power, difference, and participation, they discuss such topics as mental health in black and ethnic minorities, developing a mental health service for ethnic minorities, black staff and their experience at work, and progress in Broadmoor Hospital. They are all British-based. Distributed in the US by Taylor and Francis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
