Ethnicity and Family Therapy Third Edition

by Edited by Monica McGoldrick, Joe Giordano, and John K. Pearce

Challenging therapists to consider a family's cultural system, the classic first edition of this book contributed to a significant shift in the way family therapy was practiced.

Full Description:   

This widely used clinical reference has now been fully revised and expanded, providing the latest knowledge on culturally sensitive practice with families and individuals from over 40 different ethnic groups. Each chapter demonstrates how ethnocultural factors may influence the assumptions of both clients and therapists, the issues people bring to the clinical context, and their resources for coping and problem solving. Updated throughout with essential new material, the third edition includes chapters on several additional groups. An indispensable new appendix offers a concise guide to weaving cultural information into assessment and intervention planning.

"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." -José Szapocznik, PhD, Center for Family Studies, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Miami
