This research-to-practice volume grounds clinicians in a robust, culturally-informed framework for conducting effective therapy with Asian-American couples, families, and individuals. Family, cultural, social, and spiritual dynamics are explored across ethnicities, generations, relationships, and immigrant/citizen experience to reflect a diverse, growing population. Discussion and case examples focus on contrasts, conflicts, and balances involved in acculturation and change, notably the shift from collectivist cultural tradition to a more independent view of the self, gender, choices, and relationships. The contributors' finely shaded guidance and accessible approach will help therapists provide appropriate services for Asian-American clients without minimizing or pathologizing their experiences.

Included in the coverage:

How Asian American couples negotiate relational harmony: collectivism and gender equality.
Through religion: working-class Korean immigrant women negotiate patriarchy.
The role of Chinese grandparents in their adult children's parenting practices in the United States.
Balancing the old and the new: the case of second generation Filipino American women.
Bicultural identity as a protective factor among Southeast Asian American youth who have witnessed domestic violence.

Transition and Change in Collectivist Family Life is a cogent clinical resource for practitioners and mental health professionals with interests in Asian-American family therapy, psychotherapy, collectivism, and faith-based community and counseling.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Quek and Fang's edited book ... features a collection of qualitative studies conducted by both current researchers and practitioners in Asian American clinical practice. ... Readers of this book are most likely practitioners working with Asian Americans searching for practical strategies to engage a population who has notoriously underutilized mental health services. ... Quek and Fang's edited book gives readers a different perspective on working with Asian Americans. ... I would highly suggest this book to the targeted audience." (Alexander Lin Hsieh, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 62 (43), October, 2017)
