Praise for First Edtion 'There are many good things about the perspective taken in this book...an ambitious and creative effort. Provides a starting point on the road to building an alternative therapeutic approach that is sensitive to cultural diversity. It makes an important initial contribution to systemizing knowledge for family therapy so that it is culturally and ethnically specific' - Journal of Marriage and the Family The classic and critically acclaimed book Family Therapy with Ethnic Minorities, Second Edition has now been updated and revised to reflect the various demographic changes that have occurred in the lives of ethnic minority families and the implications of these changes for clinical practice. Family Therapy with Ethnic Minorities provides advanced students and practitioners with the most up-to-date examination yet of the theory, models, and techniques relevant to ethnic minority family functioning and therapy.
After an introductory discussion of principles to be considered in practice with ethnic minorities, the authors apply these principles to working with specific ethnic minority groups, namely African Americans, Latinos, Asian/Pacific Americans, and First Nations People. Distinctive cultural values of each ethnic group are explored as well as specific guidelines and suggestions on culturally significant family therapy strategies and skills.
