Summary

This important new volume shows mental health service providers how to work with economically disadvantaged children and adolescents from culturally diverse backgrounds. Comprehensively addressing the wide range of issues one encounters in the treatment of minority children - including poverty, discrimination, and problems with acculturation - the book concentrates on the mental health needs of primarily those African-American, Latino, Asian-American, and American Indian children who are subject to numerous social stressors and whose families represent the lower socioeconomic levels. Illustrated with clinical vignette, and providing step-by-step details on the assessment and treatment of this population, the book clearly describes how to, elicit relevant history from the child, caretakers, family, and school officials, utilize diagnostic criteria in a culturally appropriate way, intervene using innovative treatment strategies. This book will be of value to child psychologists and psychiatrists, social workers, and psychiatric nurses working with children. It will also serve as an excellent text for courses in these disciplines.
