Editorial Reviews

Review

"....is a comprehensive handbook that adeptly covers the history, cultural values, racial and ethnic experiences, and mental health needs of Filipino Americans, but more important, provides this information in a thoroughly detailed, yet understandable manner." (PsycCRITIQUES, May 30, 2012)

Review

"Ranging from historical contexts to present-day case studies, theoretical models to empirical findings, self-reflection activities to online and media resources – Filipino American Psychology will engage, stimulate and challenge both novices and experts. Without question, Dr. Nadal's book is a foundational text and a one-stop resource for both the Filipino American community and the community of mental health professionals."
Alvin N. Alvarez, Ph.D., Professor, San Francisco State University

"Dr. Nadal has done a superb job of locating the experiences of Filipino Americans within the larger scholarship on ethnic minority psychology, while also highlighting the complexity, richness, and uniqueness of their psychological experiences. This book should be a part of everyone's library."
E.J.R. David, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, University of Alaska Anchorage

Filipino American Psychology: A Handbook of Theory, Research, and Clinical Practice

I was fortunate enough to read the author's book, "Filipino American Psychology: A Handbook of Theory, Research, and Clinical Practice" prior to its public release. While reading I was enthralled by the amount of the issues my culture, my family, and myself deals with that are examined in the book.
I was amazed at the different theories i.e. identity issues dealing Filipino vs. Filipino American, generational gaps, religious, and persistent culture tendencies. All of the theories are supported by credible resoudrces. I was excited reading this because many of the cultural behavior mentioned in the book makes me proud of where I came from but sad because who it can effect my people.
Kevin did a fantastic job writing this reference. It takes a glimpse of the Filipino American boy or girl, man or woman, struggling to live both worlds. I strongly recommend this book to any professor or student in counseling, in a Filipino community, and in the world of psychology.

I've read a number of works on the Philippines, on Filipino Folkways, etc. I have even read The Survival Guide to the Philippines (still a favorite). This text is absolutely brilliant. It is not perfect-- as a work that has no real peer -- but it does a fantastic job of revealing (albeit topically) the complexity of what it means to be a Filipino American in today's America. Nadal examines, and makes note of, areas that are too often lazily blended with the broad Asia-Pacific American paintbrush (i.e, LGBT, biracial children, etc). Moreover, Nadal is not afraid to reveal when "the baby is ugly," revealing the persistence of sexist mores in the "tribu." Maraming Salamat po, indeed.

This is the most comprehensive book ever written on Filipino American Psychology. Dr Nadal is knowledgeable and truly a Filipino icon. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the detailing the idiosyncrasies of Filipino Americans. Although it is an empirically based book, it was written in an engaging, easy to read and digest manner. This is truly a masterpiece!
