The book provides practical guidelines that all clinicians can apply when assessing, diagnosing, or treating culturally diverse clients. The author accents clinical work with African American, Hispanic, American Indian, and Asian clients. Some of the topics covered include a description of cultural variables in the DSM-IV that may affect assessment and treatment across groups; explanations of epidemiological mental health data across groups; a discussion on how to apply data from culturally specific, biased measures; and a description of many of the important factors to consider during the delivery of treatment. This practical volume also offers guidelines for the prevention of attrition.
