Description - Clinical Methods in Transcultural Psychiatry by Samuel O. Okpaku
This work offers an in-depth look at transcultural psychiatry. Concise yet comprehensive, it draws on many case studies and relevant clinical experience to provide practising clinicians with a basic foundation of "culturally informed" psychiatry on which they can build. Logically organized into six sections, the book begins with an overview of transcultural psychiatry and then moves to the topic of cultural psychiatry and mental health services. Treatment approaches are addressed next, followed by highlights of recent research, special topics such as how religious and supernatural beliefs affect behaviour, and discussions and recommendations on education and training in transcultural psychiatry. The final section emphasizes families in cultural transition, focusing on the needs of women and children.
