Now in its third edition, Ethnicity and Family Therapy remains one of the essential textbooks for developing cultural competence in clinical practice. Unlike any other single book in the field, its 54 chapters provide the most comprehensive description of culture-related family issues relevant to mental health and health care. At the same time, this book wisely teaches us that our understanding of these cultural patterns must incorporate not only ethnicity, but also gender, socioeconomic status, geography, religion, race, and politics, among other factors. A 'must-have' tour de force for seasoned professionals and trainees alike."--Francis G. Lu, MD, ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0898620406, Hardcover)

This widely used clinical resource and text was among the first to demonstrate the crucial significance of a family's cultural system in therapeutic work. Chapters are designed to enhance the cultural competance of clinicians working with members of over 40 different ethnic groups in the United States, including families of European, Latino, Asian, African, Middle Eastern, and Native American heritage. Ethnic profiles and case studies are presented not as definitive or stereotypical descriptions, but rather as informative frameworks for equipping practitioners with a sense of the cultural issues they may encounter in practice.
