Most Western health professionals practice in multicultural societies. The influence of culture on illness, health and rehabilitation is therefore very important. Despite this, most lower level health psychology texts skim over these differences and assume our traditional biomedical approach will be appropriate for all. In this completely revised and updated edition of a groundbreaking book, Malcolm MacLachlan redresses the balance by showing how social and cultural aspects interact with the purely physical: from assessment and treatment all the way through to effects on rehabilitation.

From the Publisher:

Physical and mental symptoms often point beyond the individuals who experience them, to the communities and cultures to which they belong. Cultural constructions of illness and health are imbued with subtle meanings, with messages, which we must learn to listen to. Exploring the fascinating interplay between culture and health, this book is concerned with helping students and clinicians think through the practical implications of working with people from different cultures. Drawing on research from psychology, sociology, anthropology and medicine, the author sets out guidelines for good practice.

From the Back Cover:

Most health professionals now practice in multicultural societies.The influence of culture on illness, health and rehabilitation istherefore very important.

Culture and Health considers the practical implicationsof working with people from different cultures. It takes anexplicitly critical perspective to explore the many fascinatinginterplays between culture and health, situating them within thebroader social contexts in which they arise. Written in an engagingand accessible style, this second edition has been extensivelyrevised and updated, and now includes a chapter on Global Health.It contains many helpful case studies and each chapter ends withguidelines for professional practice.
