Editorial Reviews


[W]e believe that this book provides a useful guide to the historical and conceptual underpinnings of the DSM cultural formulation and in doing so, takes a step in the direction suggested by the Surgeon General. We recommend it to mental health clinicians as an introduction to cultural assessment in clinical psychiatry. Alex Kopelowicz, M.D., and Steve Lopez, Ph.D., Journal of Clinical Psychiatry In this book, the authors have all demonstrated expertise in cultural psychiatry as is shown by their impressively researched presentation of how culture intertwines with and affects mental health and illness. In addition, clinical values are well illustrated through consideration of specific cultural variables along with the application of DSM-IV-TR guidelines as they are used for cultural formulation of a series of clinical case examples. Deborah L. Scuglik, M.D., Metapsychology Online Book Reviews Cultural Assessment in Clinical Psychiatry works like an effective how-to-do manual. Interesting case examples add to the rich application of the cultural formulation. This is a must-read book for all trainees in mental health. Lillian Comas-Diaz, Ph.D., The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease The Committee on Cultural Psychiatry of the Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry has written an excellent book, as one might expect from a group of individuals who have all had a major role in shaping our current understanding of cultural psychiatry. Russell Lim, M.D., Psychiatric Services

The book is informative and describes in greater detail a culturally sensitive approach to assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of the individual. It provides case examples which help to illustrate how the practices are implemented. It is a good resource for the culturally sensitive clinician.
