Overview "The only flaw of the text is that the authors have understated in the title of the book its usefulness" Glenda Pedwell, Occupational Therapist "I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It should be compulsory reading for all students of the health sciences" Associate Professor Jane McKendrick, Division of Maori and Pacific Health, University of Auckland We live in a multicultural society, yet how well do we understand the differences that exist across cultures and how they may impact on mental health and mental health assessment? Assessing Mental Health Across Cultures provides a framework for mental health professionals and students to obtain an in-depth understanding of a client whose cultural background is different to their own. The book uses a combination of theoretical discussion and case examples set in the context of Australia's multicultural society. Chapter titles include: * Issues and Dilemmas in Diagnosis Across Cultures * Cultural Values, the Sense of Self and Psychiatric Assessment * Expression and Communication of Distress Across Cultures * Issues in Translating Mental Health Terms Across Cultures * Crosscultural Beliefs about Illness * Negotiating Explanatory Models
