Description:

In today's increasingly diverse society, clinicians must provide appropriate and effective services when working with multicultural clients. Examining the role of context on our clients, ourselves, and our world is critical. In this book, Lillian Comas-D az offers a comprehensive, practical approach for enhancing your understanding of clients' contexts, developing a multicultural therapeutic relationship, and adapting your healing approach to your clients' needs. Each chapter demonstrates the application of cultural competence to a different aspect of clinical practice: self-awareness, assessment, engagement, treatment, psychopharmacology and testing, folk healing, and general multicultural consciousness. Ample clinical vignettes are provided, along with clear, easy-to-remember tools for integrating multicultural sensitivity into clinical practice. Importantly, the book draws on research and the APA Multicultural Guidelines to support the models and principles, which are illustrated with clinical material. This book is a must-read for all clinicians.
