EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Current census reports indicate that over half of the United States will be of ethnic minority background by 2050. Yet few published studies have examined or demonstrated the efficacy of currently established psychological treatments for ethnic minorities. Culturally Adapting Psychotherapy for Asian Heritage Populations: An Evidence-Based Approach identifies the need for culturally adapted psychotherapy and helps support the cultural competency movement by helping providers develop specific skillsets, rather than merely focusing on cultural self-awareness and knowledge of other groups. The book provides a top-down and bottom-up community-participatory framework for developing culturally adapted interventions that can be readily applied to many other groups. Areas targeted for adaptation are broken down into domains, principles, and the justifying rationales. This is one of the first books that provides concrete, practical, and specific advice for researchers and practitioners alike. It is also the first book that provides an actual culturally adapted treatment manual so that the reader can see cultural adaptations in action. Summarizes psychotherapy research indicating underrepresentation of ethnic minorities Describes the first evidence-based culturally adapted treatment for Asian heritage populations Provides concrete examples of adapted psychotherapy in practice Clarifies how this framework can be further used to adapt interventions for other ethnic groups Highlights how principles used to develop this depression-specific treatment can be applied to other disorders Includes the full treatment manual "Improving Your Mood: A Culturally Responsive and Holistic Approach to Treating Depression in Chinese Americans"

Comprehensive Handbook Of Psychopathology

Release Date: 2007-05-08
Pages: 970
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The purpose of this handbook, originally published in 1984, was to provide a compreh- sive review of current clinical descriptions, research , and theories of psychopathology. Descriptive psychopathology is a ?eld that forms the foundation of clinical practice and research in clinical psychology, psychiatry, psychiatric social work, psychiatric nursing, and allied professions in mental health. Since the 1st edition, the editors have devised and updated a handbook to cover both general and speci?c topics in psychopathology that would be useful to researchers, practitioners, and graduate or other advanced students in the mental health and behavioral medicine professions. To implement this plan, we have very carefully chosen colleagues whom we respect for their expertise in particular ?elds. These authors include both clinicians and researchers who have outstanding national reputations, as well as more junior behavioral scientists and clinicians who, in our opinion, will achieve similar recognition in the future. The excellent chapters in this book lead us to believe that we have chosen wisely. We would like to express our appreciation to these authors for their outstanding contributions and cooperation.

Evidence Based Psychological Practice With Ethnic Minorities
Author: Nolan W. S. Zane
Publisher: American Psychological Association (APA)
Release Date: 2016
Pages: 330
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Mental health practitioners are most effective when their services respond to the client's lifestyle, cultural and linguistic heritage, and life circumstances. Thus, an essential component of evidence-based psychological practice (EBPP) is attending to the ethnocultural background of the client. A significant challenge in using EBPP to guide treatment interventions with ethnic minority clients is that relatively little applicable research has been conducted, especially research that satisfies rigorous methodological criteria. In this book, experts in the field of ethnic minority mental health treatment discuss why research on culturally informed EBPP has not made more progress and suggest tangible strategies for conducting more meaningful and impactful studies in this area. The chapters address measurement issues such as test translation and adaptation, and research design issues such as meta-analytic strategies and mixed-method approaches. Inspiring examples show how EBPP can be tailored to meet the specific needs of ethnic minorities. This volume is an important step in reducing disparities and promoting effective mental health treatment for underserved populations.

Release Date: 2006

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Social and Cultural Foundations of Counseling and Human Services addresses the fundamental social and cultural foundations upon which counselors and other helpers develop the knowledge and skill to work effectively with diverse populations. A basic premise of this new text is that such foundational knowledge includes learning about self-concept development within a cultural and sociological context and about the impact that both individual differences and collectivistic philosophies have on cultural and personal identity. It distinctively features a social psychology perspective of diversity, complemented by an understanding of self-concept theory and its interaction with other models of identity development. Highlights of the First Edition: Maintains a balanced perspective on the impact of individualistic and collectivistic philosophies on a person's development. Utilizes a thorough treatment of social status variables that influence self-concept development, including race, ethnicity, sex, gender, sexual orientation identity, family, aging, spirituality, physical ability and disability, and social class. Provides concrete examples through exercises and narratives to help students understand the impact of specific social and cultural influences on personal development (Chapters 5-9). Contains "Counseling Inferences" sections at the end of every chapter to help summarize chapter content in the context of what it means for practicing counselors and human service providers. Provides information on and access to numerous Web sites that contain social and cultural topics (Appendix A).
