"This book updates and continues the groundbreaking work of the first edition. It helps us to overcome cultural biases as we assess and treat psychopathology."- Goffredo Bartocci, World Association of Cultural Psychiatry Founder and Past President; World Psychiatric Association Transcultural Psychiatry Section Past Chair; President, Italian Institute Transcultural Mental Health
"The first edition of this book has been a consistent reference in my clinical and academic scholarly work. It has improved the care of patients with mental illness. The original seminal text used ordinary understandable language to share with the reader the importance of culture in the experience, expression, presentation, and management of mental illness. So the reader is challenged to better skill up on the art and science of assessing psychopathology across cultural groups. Vivid case descriptions guide the reader through contrasting cultural contexts and distinct phenomena, the significance of which requires careful nuanced contextualization. The second edition succeeds in updating and making contemporary this essential textbook. This valuable new edition will be a riveting read and a constant companion."-Kamaldeep Bhui, BSc, MBBS, MSc, MD, FRCPsych, FRSA, FRCP(Edin), Professor of Cultural, Psychiatry, & Epidemiology, Barts & The London School of Medicine, Queen Mary University of London & Hon; Consultant Psychiatrist, East London NHS Foundation Trust.
"This classic textbook, one of the first of its kind 20 years ago, has been fully updated with DSM-5 and the latest references. Most importantly, each chapter's 3 to 6 clinical cases and suggested clinical guidelines will benefit both trainees and seasoned clinicians alike. Dr. Streltzer and his colleagues have indeed created a living legacy of Wen-Shing Tseng's pioneering work in cultural psychiatry."-Francis G. Lu, MD, Kim Professor in Cultural Psychiatry, Emeritus, University of California, Davis
