A clear reminder that cultural diversity is a fact of life, this book gives family therapists and other helping professionals a greater understanding of the histories, values, and expectations of the diverse families and individuals we encounter.

Important themes resonate throughout, including the ways that religious and spiritual beliefs, historical circumstances, immigration histories, and experiences of racism and prejudice influence contemporary families' strengths and struggles. Every chapter is moving, unique, and highly useful. Unlike any other single book in the field, its 54 chapters provide the most comprehensive description of culture-related family issues relevant to mental health and health care.

At the same time, this book wisely teaches us that our understanding of these cultural patterns must incorporate not only ethnicity, but also gender, socioeconomic status, geography, religion, race, and politics, among other factors.

A 'must-have' tour de force for seasoned professionals and trainees alike. Lu, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco, and San Francisco General Hospital "Ethnicity is part of the lived experience of each of us every day, whether in the foods we like, our ways of expressing affection, religious and political views, gender roles, taboos and expectations, and so much more.

This book expands our understanding of the complexity of the cultural fabric of our families: what distinguishes us and what unites us. As we travel through a multiplicity of national, cultural, racial, and religious backgrounds, what is most remarkable is that across all of these diverse experiences and conditions, families are important to us all.

This book allows us to celebrate our differences while encouraging us to conduct our clinical work with respect toward and knowledge of each family's ethnic and cultural uniqueness.

I have been impressed with the various editions of the text as a compendium of information regarding a broad cross-section of the human family.

I have particularly enjoyed the increasing expansion of coverage, both within broad ethnic groups and across groups. This breadth deepens my students' comprehension of the richness of human diversity and mitigates their tendencies to view members of different groups through monolithic lenses.

This text has been invaluable in my approach to teaching about the nexus of person, problems, and treatment approaches. McGoldrick received her MSW in from Smith College School for Social Work, which later granted her one of the few honorary doctorates awarded by the school in its year history.

An internationally known author, she speaks widely on culture, class, gender, the family life cycle, and other topics. He was formerly Director of the American Jewish Committee's Center on Ethnicity, Behavior, and Communications, where he conducted pioneering studies on the psychological nature of ethnic identity and group behavior. The author of widely published articles on ethnicity, family, and the media, he served as host of Proud to Be Me, a PBS television program, and as producer of the audio series Growing Up in America.

A noted family therapist, author, teacher, and lecturer, Ms. Garcia-Preto has published and presented widely on Puerto Rican and Latino families, Latinas, ethnic intermarriage, and families with adolescents. She is a highly respected trainer in the areas of cultural competence and organizational team building.

This is a very helpful book when learning how to counsel people from different cultural backgrounds.

Very good book for all counselors. This is a great informative book. It does not generalize all Asian, Latin or Middle Eastern cultures.

It breaks it down into individual countries. It also gives a cultural history of the target group and their assimilation into American society. It is the only one I know of that discusses European Americans as part of diversity.

My only disappointment is that there is no discussion of South America. Overall this is an excellent book recommended to me by one of my Psychology professors. This is an excellent book. I read the older edition for a diversity course as part of my doctoral psychology education. I sought out the book as I develop a training program for interns to enrich our discussions on ethnicity.

I personally love reading it on my own for enjoyment also and I'm not even a family therapist. Book is in rough shape and seems to have water damage. Has a little bit of profanity written in the pages. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web.
