The Handbook of Adult Psychopathology in Asians represents a historically remarkable global collaboration among leading experts of psychopathology in Asian adults. Chapters provide critical appraisals of existing research and theory as they relate to issues surrounding the diagnosis, etiology, and treatment of major mental disorders among Asians. This volume covers major Axis I disorders as identified by the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, including mood disorders, anxiety disorders, substance use disorders, somatoform disorders, dissociative disorders, eating disorders, sleep disorders, adjustment disorders, and schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. In addition, the book provides coverage of Axis II personality disorders, including antisocial personality disorder. Complementing these topics are chapters that take a unique look at psychiatric syndromes that have been identified in Asia and at interventions that have been indigenously developed in Asia for treating mental disorders. Additional foundational chapters focus on topics such as the psychology of Asians, assessment and research issues in studying Asians, and future directions for research and policy in studying and treating Asians with mental disorders. With this volume in hand, mental health professionals and researchers around the world now have a single and critical resource that they can use to enhance their efforts in studying and treating Asian adults with mental disorders.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A landmark publication that addresses the roles of Asian culture in the theory, diagnosis, etiology, and treatment of mental disorders. The handbook is a great contribution to the study of Asian mental health. It can be an invaluable sourcebook informing the scientific community, including clinicians, researchers, and scholars, about psychopathology in Asian adults. The Handbook advances our knowledge of Asian mental health and broadens the scope of Asian cultural psychopathology. * PsycCritiques *
It is to be applauded that there is a book that explicitly acknowledges that how people may embody and express their distress may have at least in part some connections to their place in time, space and culture. * Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy *
