  • Cultural adaptation

    Cultural adaptation

    Tools for evidence based practice with diverse populations.

    Washington, D.C.: APA Press. Doi: 10.1037/13752-0

    This multi authored volume brings together the scholarly and the clinical in its analysis of two separate yet inextricably linked endeavors in psychology: the cultural adaptation of existing interventions and the movement toward evidence-based practice (EBP). The unifying theoretical framework of this volume promotes culturally adapted EBPs as productive and empirically viable approaches to treating ethnic minorities and culturally diverse groups. Chapter authors describe cultural adaptations of conventional EBPs for a variety of psychological problems across a wide range of cultures and ethnicities — Latino/as, Chinese, African Americans, and American Indians among them. Cultural Adaptations will appeal to clinicians who treat an ethnically and culturally diverse clientele, as well as to researchers, scholars, and students, who will value the conceptual and methodological discussions of evidence-based psychological practice and cultural adaptations of psychotherapeutic techniques.

    This book serves as an anchor in the study and analysis of psychotherapy in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. The volume frames an ambitious agenda ranging from theoretical approaches, treatments for specific disorders (the inattentive, dissociative disorders), and critical issues such as ethics, research, training, and practical recommendations to the practice of psychotherapy. The chapters incorporate a cultural, contextual and socio-political perspective in his analysis of the practices and approaches in psychotherapy. Guillermo Bernal and Alfonso Martinez-Taboas adopt a psychology of liberation approach that critically evaluates the theoretical and practical models that dominate the field of psychotherapy. This is a huge step for psychotherapy in Puerto Rico. The reader of this text may integrate knowledge in core areas of psychotherapy and will learn the limits of the assumptive models of each of the therapeutic approaches used in Puerto Rico. The volume provides a different lens to key models of psychotherapy and invites readers to consider the adaptation or modification of model features that are responsive to the island social, economic, political, and cultural context. This volume invites the reader to consider how psychotherapy can be both an art and a science.

Written by two experts on drug rehabilitation, it uses actual case material to illustrate the signs and stages of drug abuse, how drug use affects both the drug-abusing individual and his or her family, and various alternatives to treatment. While most of the content is not new, the book’s focus on how drug abuse can affect the family makes it a unique contribution. It is clearly written and should be of value to anyone interested in this urgent problem. An appendix on self-help resources is included.Barbara J.
