MEDIA REVIEWS

"The representation of additional ethnic groups is an important contribution of this compelling new edition. A clear reminder that cultural diversity is a fact of life, this book gives family therapists and other helping professionals a greater understanding of the histories, values, and expectations of the diverse families and individuals we encounter. Important themes resonate throughout, including the ways that religious and spiritual beliefs, historical circumstances, immigration histories, and experiences of racism and prejudice influence contemporary families' strengths and struggles. Every chapter is moving, unique, and highly useful."--Patricia Arredondo, EdD, Counseling/Counseling Psychology Program, Arizona State University; President (2005-2006), American Counseling Association

"Now in its third edition, Ethnicity and Family Therapy remains one of the essential textbooks for developing cultural competence in clinical practice. Unlike any other single book in the field, its 54 chapters provide the most comprehensive description of culture-related family issues relevant to mental health and health care. At the same time, this book wisely teaches us that our understanding of these cultural patterns must incorporate not only ethnicity, but also gender, socioeconomic status, geography, religion, race, and politics, among other factors. A 'must-have' tour de force for seasoned professionals and trainees alike."--Francis G. Lu, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco, and San Francisco General Hospital

"Ethnicity is part of the lived experience of each of us every day, whether in the foods we like, our ways of expressing affection, religious and political views, gender roles, taboos and expectations, and so much more. This book expands our understanding of the complexity of the cultural fabric of our families: what distinguishes us and what unites us. As we travel through a multiplicity of national, cultural, racial, and religious backgrounds, what is most remarkable is that across all of these diverse experiences and conditions, families are important to us all. This book allows us to celebrate our differences while encouraging us to conduct our clinical work with respect toward and knowledge of each family's ethnic and cultural uniqueness."--Jose Szapocznik, PhD, Center for Family Studies, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Miami

"I have used Ethnicity and Family Therapy as a text for 12+ years in my master's-level Cross-Cultural Counseling course. I have been impressed with the various editions of the text as a compendium of information regarding a broad cross-section of the human family. I have particularly enjoyed the increasing expansion of coverage, both within broad ethnic groups and across groups. This breadth deepens my students' comprehension of the richness of human diversity and mitigates their tendencies to view members of different groups through monolithic lenses. This text has been invaluable in my approach to teaching about the nexus of person, problems, and treatment approaches."--Daryl M. Rowe, PhD, Graduate School of Education and Psychology, Pepperdine University
