Editorial Reviews


"This outstanding volume has appeared at a most opportune time! Federal agencies, certification boards, professional organizations, and training programs are emphasizing the importance of cultural competence in clinical care. The recent 2000 Census has pointed up the importance of providing equitable, fair, and quality care to all of our citizens, regardless of ethnicity or sociocultural characteristics. This book guides the psychiatrist in achieving cultural competence in psychiatric practice. Topics include diagnostic guidelines, psychopharmacology, collaboration with translators, migration, and cultural factors that can influence diagnosis and treatment. Rich case examples emphasize clinical themes often encountered in psychiatric management. This book should appeal to the newest resident as well as the veteran psychiatrist keeping abreast of major developments in psychiatry."-- "Joseph Westermeyer, M.D., Ph.D., Chief of Psychiatry and Director of Mental Health Service, Minneapolis, VAMC, Professor of Psychiatry and Adjunct Professor of Anthropology, University of Minnesota"

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.
