Assessing and treating culturally diverse clients: a practical guide
Is it a good idea to conduct your first meeting with an African American client differently than with an Asian American one? Should you treat an American Indian client with the same therapeutic approach you use to treat a Hispanic client? This helpful resource offers effective, practical guidelines for dealing with these and many other issues. It provides clinical suggestions for working with African American, Hispanic, American Indian, and Asian clients. Some of the topics covered include a description of cultural variables that may affect assessment and treatment across groups, explanations of epidemiological mental health data across groups, a discussion on how to apply data from culturally specific, biased measures, and a description of many of the important factors to consider during the delivery of treatment. It also offers guidelines for the prevention of attrition. Assessing and Treating Culturally Diverse Clients is an invaluable resource for psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, family therapists, counselors in school settings, and other mental health professionals.
