Summary: This landmark book comprehensively and systematically describes and defines the newly emerging field of cultural psychiatry. The provision of culturally sensitive, relevant, and effective care for patients of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds is extensively examined from clinical, research, and theoretical perspectives. The book has been written by a single author to maximize integrity and consistency. Thirty d...istinguished national and international scholars provided consultation to insure broad and updated knowledge on each topic addressed. The book begins with an introduction to the cultural dimensions of human behavior, stress and illness; moves on to elaborate the impact of culture on psychopathology, clinical practice, and psychological therapies; then examines unique social phenomena relevant to clinical work; and ends with issues of research, theory and training. This is the first book of its kind to be written in textbook style for national and international readers and particularly for clinicians working in multiethnic societies. [read more]
