Description - Cultural Assessment in Clinical Psychiatry by Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry

This volume offers a contemporary, pragmatic understanding of how culture is inextricably intertwined with mental health and mental illness. This volume begins with the history and scope of culture in clinical psychiatry, and continues by detailing 11 cultural variables that strongly influence clinical work (for example, ethnic identity, race, gender, religion, migration and country of origin). The authors explain the clinical use of cultural formulation, the instrument for ensuring thorough clinical assessments, based on DSM-IV2 guidelines. The volume concludes with a summary and suggestions regarding the complex issues raised by a thorough cultural assessment.
