About this item
The author outlines a framework for therapy that emphasizes personal and interpersonal work and the role of the cultural influences of age and generation, developmental or other disabilities, religion or spiritual orientation, ethnic and racial identity, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, indigenous heritage, national origin, and gender. She covers therapist cultural self-assessment and exploring personal experiences, biases, and values; how to use the framework to understand client identities, establish rapport, and demonstrate respect; how to conduct culturally responsive assessments, including working with interpreters, standardized testing, and cross-cultural issues in diagnosis; and the use of indigenous, traditional, and diverse approaches to psychotherapy. This edition has updated information on the DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), ICD-10 (International Classification of Diseases), and upcoming ICD-11, and new sections on working with children, ****** people, and people in poverty; and trauma-informed care. It has a new chapter on changing multicultural terminology and language; new information on intellectual and neuropsychological assessment across cultures; a chapter on the integrative approach to psychotherapy, with a focus on culturally responsive cognitive-behavioral therapy; research from positive psychology, including mindfulness; and practice exercises.
