: Discover brilliant insights on dealing with the cultural aspects of family mental health with this landmark guide. Culture and Family systematically reviews various dimensions of the family from a cross-cultural perspective, including system, development, behavior, and functioning. It then thoroughly examines the problems and dysfunctions that can occur in families of different cultural backgrounds, and finally proposes culturally appropriate assessments and treatments for resolving these family problems.Family counselors, therapists, and researchers who study the family will find practical suggestions on how to assess and evaluate the family with cultural considerations; clinical suggestions on providing culturally relevant, effective care of the family; and theoretical elaboration on the cultural implications of family therapy. Instead of focusing on families of a particular ethnic or cultural background, the book gives comprehensive coverage to subjects that related to cultural aspects of the family function, problems, and therapy. The authorsâunique backgrounds, which include analysis of the cross-cultural aspects of human behavior, knowledge in family research, and clinical experience in family therapy, add immeasurably to this new book's important contribution.
