Culture and psychotherapy : A Guide to Clinical Practice. Edited by Wen-Shing Tseng, MA, Jon Streltzer, MD, 2001, 320 p.

Presents the nuts and bolts of incorporating culture into therapy in a way that is immediately useful and practical. Illustrated by numerous case studies that demonstrate issues, techniques, and recommendations, this volume focuses not on specific race or ethnicity but instead on culture. Topies include Native American spiritual beliefs, folk healing, ethnie transference during therapy, the psychological aspects of giving and receiving medication, the severe trauma of Southeast Asian refugees, the ongoing cultural issues in psychotherapy with African, Asian, and Hispanie Americans, marital counseling for intercultural couples, and group therapy with multiethnie members.
