Many first and second generation Asian immigrants identify, to varying extents, with traditional Asian cultural values and may experience acculturation challenges. These challenges, such as language barriers, racial discrimination, underemployment, the loss of support networks and changes in family role and structure, result in an urgent need for culturally responsive services. Drawing on literature from English-speaking countries with sizeable Asian immigrant populations such as the United States, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom, this text is designed especially for clinicians and students working with Asian immigrant populations. It discusses the therapeutic process in psychotherapy and counseling with these clients, exploring both key psychodynamic constructs and social systemic factors. There are chapters on issues such as domestic violence, gambling and alcohol addiction, elder abuse, depression and suicide, discussing the prevalence and nature of the mental health issues and each containing case studies from at least two different Asian ethnic groups. This book is an important reference for practising social workers and counselors as well as for social work students undertaking clinical practice courses.
