Culture and Psychopathology: A Guide to Clinical Assessment

Front Cover
Jon Streltzer
Routledge, Sep 26, 2016 - Cross-cultural studies - 208 pages
Since the first edition of Culture and Psychopathology was published, a growing national and international interest in how culture impacts mental disorders and how psychopathology is influenced by culture has become a rising field of focus. In this extensive revision, chapters have been updated with new material and now incorporate the DSM-5's classification system of mental disorders. This book is international in scope, not focusing on specific cultural groups, but rather how the cultural context affects the presentation and the process of assessment of different types of psychopathology. This edition highlights case studies and practical guidelines to support clinicians who assess patients of any cultural background.
