Format: Hardcover
Now in a fully updated and expanded second edition, Addressing Cultural Complexities in Practice: Assessment, Diagnosis, and Therapy is a guide for clinicians, counselors, and psychologists to taking into account issues what author Pamela A. Hays, Ph.D. refers to as the "ADDRESSING" framework - Age, Developmental and acquired Disabilities, Religion, Ethnicity, Socioeconomic status, Sexual orientation, Indigenous heritage, Native origin, and Gender. All these factors can have an important influence on how best to interact with and aid a patient. Addressing Cultural Complexities in Practice offers an overall framework that can be used with a person of any cultural identity, now in an updated second edition with new sections on cross-cultural assessment of trauma, psychotherapy with people living in poverty, and ethical boundaries and complex relationships in rural and minority communities. Organized in accordance with the flow of clinical work rather than a one-chapter-per-group style, and featuring "key ideas" summaries at the close of each chapter to facilitate educational use and self-study, Addressing Cultural Complexities in Practice is a "must-have" for any practicing or aspiring therapist in today's increasingly diverse America.

I'm a 4th year clinical psychology PhD candidate and I read this book in my Ethnicity in Clinical Theory & Practice course. I thought it was amazing. The author uses examples from very diverse racial/ethnic populations and I learned about cultures that aren't normally mentioned in psychology texts. Additionally, most of the White students in my class also enjoyed the book. The author had a way of talking about privilege without making them defensive and I feel she was able to truly reach them. I would recommend this book not just for courses that focus directly on race and ethnicity, bur for any course that is dealing with training service providers who will be working cross-racially or with minority clients.

This book provides a comprehensive appreciation for learning the intricacies of cultural barriers that contribute to less than adequate collaboration with clients of distinct backgrounds. It is a user friendly read and useful for any clinician wanting to incorporate valuable insight about understanding clients who do not fit the mainstream.

This book was a good overview of cross cultural counseling and competency for clinicians. A good book for beginners and it works for cuing in novice students to the importance of understanding class, power and culture. Well organized and I would recommend. (Disclaimer – I have taught this type of class before and may be a harsh critic).

I purchased this book for my Masters level class. It was extremely helpful throughout the quarter and I am sure I will be able to use it as a reference for future courses as well as in my professional practice.

This book is ok. I found it to be a little less interesting to read than other texts, but it offers important information about working with people from various cultures.
