Abstract

Reviewer states that this book (W-S Tseng and J. Streltzer {Eds.} 2001; see record 2001-06597-000) is a well organized and well edited book that moves beyond the American Psychiatric Association's cultural formulation to provide useful information, including recommending the use of the cultural dimension to increase psychotherapy's effectiveness. The reviewer believes the clinical vignettes demonstrate culture's impact on the meaning of patients' lives, the nature of their stress, their coping mechanisms, and their psychopathology. It is maintained that both the contributors and the editors offer vivid clinical portraits illustrating these issues. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved).
