Diagnosis in a Multicultural Context: A Casebook for Mental Health Professionals

Diagnosis in a Multicultural Context provides mental health professionals with materials to practice the application of cross-cultural variations on standard diagnostic guidelines. Freddy A Paniagua offers clinical case examples to illustrate the cross-cultural variations applicable in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of clients from four major cultural groups: African Americans, American Indians, Asians and Hispanics. This companion volume to Paniagua's Assessing and Treating Diverse Clients (Second Edition, SAGE 1998) clarifies and expands the content of the previous book.
