SUMMARY

After 15 years of cross-cultural practice in assessment and research, with individuals from various ethnic, cultural, and linguistic backgrounds, the authors have produced this book, offering an eclectic approach to assessment in the cognitive, personality, vocational, linguistic, visual-motor and educational areas. The underlying principle of Assessment and Culture is the successful assessment of culturally and linguistically diverse individuals. Proper assessment relies on mental health professionals understanding the values and cognitive styles endemic to an individual's cultural upbringing. A biocultural approach to assessment is proposed in a simplified form so that clinical mental health and educational professionals can apply it to individuals from any culture. The key feature of this approach is that it seeks to empower the examinee through observing his/her strengths as they relate to and interact with various systems in the examinee's environment. Among the book's key features: · Captures various aspects of cross-cultural assessment · Presents research conducted by mental health professionals from various ethnic, cultural, and linguistic backgrounds · Proposes a biocultural model of assessment · Endorses the assumption that each set of cultural circumstances results in a unique individual responseGopaul-McNicol, Sharon-Ann is the author of 'Assessment and Culture Psychological Tests With Minority Populations' with ISBN 9780122904516 and ISBN 0122904516.
