Description: A bestseller in its Second Edition , the Third Edition of Assessing and Treating Culturally Diverse Clients has beennbsp;extensively revised and updated with new materials to enhance the contents across chapters.nbsp;nbsp; This book quickly summarizes key practical guidelines that all clinicians can apply when assessing, diagnosing, or treating culturally diverse clients. The author also addresses clinical work with African American, Hispanic, American Indian, and Asian clients. Some of the topics covered include a description of cultural variables in the DSM-IV that may affect assessment and treatment across groups; explanations of epidemiological mental health data across groups; a discussion on how to apply data from culturally specific, biased measures; and a description of many of the important factors to consider during the delivery of treatment. This practical volume also offers guidelines for the prevention of attrition. New to the Third Edition : Contains extensive discussions dealing with the use of the 2000 U.S. Census data in a clinical context and this edition is the only book in the field of multiculturalism thatnbsp; deals with this issue.nbsp; The section dealing with the use of the mental status exam hasnbsp;been significantly expanded, including additional examples and a case vignette to help clinicians to further understand why that exam should be used in a cultural context. The discussion on "models of acculturation" isnbsp; a significant addition and with emphasis on concrete guidelines to assist clinicians placing those variants of acculturation (e.g., assimilation versus the separation model). Includes discussions on "terminology" as it applies to the Hispanic/Latino population and why clinicians should be concerned about selecting the right term when addressing clients from populations such as Hispanic versus La Raza, Chicano, or Mexican-American. Assessing and Treating Culturally Diverse Clients is an excellent text for any course in the mental health academic discipline.nbsp; It is also an ideal resource for mental health professionals seeking a nbsp;license to practice in their respective field.
