This widely used clinical resource and text was among the first to demonstrate the crucial significance of a family's cultural system in therapeutic work. Chapters are designed to enhance the cultural competance of clinicians working with members of over 40 different ethnic groups in the United States, including families of European, Latino, Asian, African, Middle Eastern, and Native American heritage. Ethnic profiles and case studies are presented not as definitive or stereotypical descriptions, but rather as informative frameworks for equipping practitioners with a sense of the cultural issues they may encounter in practice.
