This book fills the widening gap in multicultural literature by providing specific culture-centered interventions. The first section of the text highlights culturally based interventions. The second section focuses on the treatment of Culture-Bound Syndromes (CBS). Culture-Bound Syndromes are defined as recurrent, locality specific behavior patterns that are observed only in certain cultural environments. The third section, clinical and training implications, includes a chapter describing how training will need to be reconceptualized in order to promote counselors who are effective with a wide range of clients.
