Description

This volume presents cutting-edge work in cross-cultural psychiatry by an international group of clinicians, researchers, and leaders in mental health policy.

An outgrowth of a recent lecture series at the Massachusetts General Hospital, the book features contributions from diverse fields including psychiatry, psychology, anthropology, social work, social medicine, and public policy.

The first section highlights the implications of biological and cultural diversity for psychiatric diagnosis and treatment. Subsequent sections focus on psychotherapy in cross-cultural contexts and international mental health policy. Chapters examine a variety of patient populations, including Asian, African, and Hispanic Americans and populations in Europe and developing countries.
