Culture and Psychopathology : A Guide to Clinical Assessment (Hardcover) - image 1 of 1

about this item

Contributing to the emerging field of cultural psychiatry, psychiatrists consider assessment, in the broad sense of understanding a patient sufficiently to formulate a treatment approach, rather than diagnosis in the narrow meaning of a descriptive categorization. They do not use specific ethnic groups as the base from which to explore psychopathology, though many of the example cases come from ethnic/cultural groups in the Asia/Pacific region, reflecting the clinical experience of the authors at the University of Hawaii. The second volume is substantially different, they say, though many of the original features remain and the original authors have remained in close communication during the revision.
