9780415841931: Handbook of Arab American Psychology

The Handbook of Arab American Psychology is the first major publication to comprehensively discuss the Arab American ethnic group from a lens that is primarily psychological. This edited book contains a comprehensive review of the cutting-edge research related to Arab Americans and offers a critical analysis regarding the methodologies and applications of the scholarly literature. It is a landmark text for both multicultural psychology as well as for Arab American scholarship.

Considering the post 9/11 socio-political context in which Arab Americans are under ongoing scrutiny and attention, as well as numerous misunderstandings and biases against this group, this text is timely and essential. Chapters in the Handbook of Arab American Psychology highlight the most substantial areas of psychological research with this population, relevant to diverse sub-disciplines including cultural, social, developmental, counseling/clinical, health, and community psychologies. Chapters also include content that intersect with related fields such as sociology, American studies, cultural/ethnic studies, social work, and public health. The chapters are written by distinguished scholars who merge their expertise with a review of the empirical data in order to provide the most updated presentation of scholarship about this population.

The Handbook of Arab American Psychology offers a noteworthy contribution to the field of multicultural psychology and joins references on other racial/ethnic minority groups, including Handbook of African American Psychology, Handbook of Asian American Psychology, Handbook of U.S. Latino Psychology, and The Handbook of Chicana/o Psychology and Mental Health.

About the Author:

Mona M. Amer, PhD, is an associate professor of psychology at the American University in Cairo, Egypt. Dr. Amer’s primary research and policy interests are in ethnic/racial disparities in behavioral health, with a specialization in the Arab and Muslim minorities. Within that framework she is interested in immigration/acculturation and mental health, mental illness stigma and other cultural barriers to service utilization for minority groups, and the development of culturally valid research measures. Dr. Amer is the co-editor of Counseling Muslims: Handbook of Mental Health Issues and Interventions and previous editor-in-chief of the Journal of Muslim Mental Health.

Germine H. Awad, PhD, is an associate professor of psychology in the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin. Her research can be broadly categorized in the area of prejudice and discrimination as well as ethnic/racial identity and acculturation. Her research tends to focus on two ethnic groups: Arab Americans and African Americans. She has conducted research on predictors of discrimination for Arab Americans and predictors of prejudice towards the group. Dr. Awad is the co-chair of the APA Committee on Ethnic Minority Affairs (CEMA) working group on Arab/Middle Eastern Americans and has served on several journal editorial boards.

Review:

Mona Amer and Germine Awad have assembled an impressive team of scholars to provide a timely and comprehensive handbook on Arab-American psychology. As a pioneering volume defining the field, it will no doubt become a classic in the study of multicultural psychology.

--Frederick T.L. Leong, Ph.D., Director, MSU Consortium for Multicultural Psychology Research

The Handbook of Arab American Psychology is a must-read for anyone interested in multicultural psychology. Contributors are experts on Arab-American psychology who cover a wide range of topics through a psychological lens. This invaluable book is a timely and essential contribution to the field.

--Lillian Comas-Diaz, Ph.D., Author, Multicultural Care: A Clinician’s Guide to Cultural Competence
