Family Therapy with Ethnic Minorities provides advanced students and practitioners with the most up-to-date examination yet of the theory, models, and techniques relevant to ethnic minority family functioning and therapy. After an introductory discussion of principles to be considered in practice with ethnic minorities, the author applies these principles to working with specific ethnic minority groups, namely Black Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian/Pacific Americans, and American Indians/Alaskan Natives. Distinctive cultural values of each ethnic group are explored as well as a theory based how-to, that is, specific guidelines and suggestions on culturally significant family therapy strategies and skills. "This well-organized and readable book deals with theoretical and practical issues in working with ethnic minority families in the U. S. . . . I am impressed by the author's ability to minimize the stereotyping involved largely through the richness of the clinical material. . . . This is a very interesting and informative work written by a family therapist with extensive experience in working with minority families." --Transcultural Psychiatric Research Review
