Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Improving mental health care through culturally sensitive research and practice

Culturally sensitive practice is a vital component of effective mental health care in our increasingly diverse societies: Mental illnesses vary in prevalence between cultural and ethnic groups, as do the meanings attached to them and people s responses to them. The important implications of this interplay between culture and psychopathology for diagnosis and treatment are scrutinized and elucidated in this comprehensive and well-organized book, which uniquely looks at a range of practical examples involving various ethinic minority populations in North America and Europe. Leading experts from around the world have integrated divergent topics into a systematic and clinically relevant volume. Cultural Variations in Psychopathology: From Research to Treatment is an important resource for researchers and in particular for any mental health professional who works with ethnically diverse communities.

Topics covered include:
An Overview of Migration and Mental Health
Cultural Neuroscience Perspectives on Understanding the Self
The Interplay Between Culture and Emotion Regulation
Culturally Sensitive Diagnosis (ICD/DSM)
Depression, Psychoses, Somatization, Perception of Pain, Suicide, Substance Abuse and Addiction in Divergent Ethnic Groups
Taking Culture into Account in Treatment
