In this comprehensive text, leading experts in the field unite and explore the mental lhealth concerns of women, gays and lesbians, the deaf, the elderly, and religiously diverse populations while also examining issues particular to bi-racial individuals, and differences within and between various cultures. The authors present an extensive literature review across chapters that elucidates the relevant mental health research, as well as valuable intervention strategies essential to the treatment of culturally diverse individuals. A vital resource for students and therapists treating multicultural populations, as well as anyone interested in developing multicultural sensitivity, this text provides critical insight into the widespread resistance to multiculturalism and poses suggestions for the future that will encourage knowledge, sensitivity, and awarenesss to an increasingly multicultural society.
