Multicultural care : a clinician's guide to cultural competence by Lillian Comas-Díaz( Book )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Culture is the proverbial elephant sitting in the middle of one's consulting room. If one ignores this elephant, he or she runs the risk of collision. Notably, if one approaches culture from a reductionistic perspective, he or she may reenact the fable of the blind men touching different parts of the elephant and misidentifying the animal. In other words, the clinician ends up misinterpreting the effects of culture on clinical practice. Instead, when one recognizes the role of culture, he or she develops an approach to clinical care that examines the impact of context on clients, ourselves, and the world. My intention in writing this book is to help clinicians increase their clinical cultural competence. Although there are numerous resources on cultural competence, they tend to emphasize the training of graduate students as opposed to the continuing education of practicing clinicians (Rogers-Sirin, 2008). I intend for this book to bridge this gap by offering resources to graduate students, clinicians in training, novice therapists, and seasoned practitioners alike. To facilitate the journey toward cultural competence, I propose the adoption of a multicultural care perspective. This approach involves enhancing understanding of clients' contexts, developing a multicultural therapeutic relationship, and adapting the healing approach to clients' needs. As a clinician, you already have most of what you need to endorse a multicultural care approach. You can become a multicultural caring clinician without abandoning your theoretical orientation. At the core of multicultural care is a desire to work with multicultural clients. Although all people have cultures, I use the term multicultural individuals to refer to culturally different individuals and/or people of color"--Introduction.

Psychological health of women of color : intersections, challenges, and opportunities by Lillian Comas-Díaz( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Women of color arguably face the greatest barriers to success and the most inequity. Yet, by taking advantage of attributes like resilience, intelligence, and spirituality, women of color are able to overcome common developmental issues and reach a positive state of psychological health. This work serves to celebrate the strengths of women of color, identify unique opportunities, and examine the specific challenges and issues of this group. Psychological Health of Women of Color: Intersections, Challenges, and Opportunities is an anthology that examines core issues of women of color's emotional health and well-being. Organized by subject, the work comprises contributions from noted experts on the psychological health of women of color. The book analyzes the life stages of women of color: childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and old age. It serves to address the challenges women of color face in the forms of physical health, violence, substance abuse, psychopharmacology, and legal/forensic issues as well as to highlight diverse identity intersections and opportunities for women of color. The section on intersections of identity discusses the psychological health of lesbians of color, multiracial women, female immigrants of color, women with disabilities, and working mid-career women, while high achievers, leaders, mentors, athletes, artists, and spiritual individuals among women of color are addressed in the section on opportunities."--Publisher's website

This video demonstrates how seven psychologists handle patient anger in-session.

Anger is used in the general and descriptive meaning of a strong feeling of displeasure and usually of antagonism. Each of the seven videotape vignettes, between 3 and 6 minutes in length, attempts to show the content and process of the clientʼs expression of anger, the therapistʼs initial responses to that expression, and some ensuing transaction

Women psychotherapists : journeys in healing by Lillian Comas-Díaz( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes the real-life journeys of women psychotherapists: why each woman chose this profession and what she learned about others--and most importantly, about herself--in this choice. Most critically, these women now share how they have integrated this wisdom into their everyday lives. While psychotherapists may also be authors, few write books about their journeys in the profession. Women Psychotherapists: Journeys in Healing is one of those rare books. Each contributor invites her readers onto the road traveled by the woman who listens to others needing her help and guides them into living a more joyous, successful life, even as she moves towards greater fulfillment in her own life

Women psychotherapists' reflections on female friendships : sisters of the heart( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Psychologists, as well as the general public, have recognized the importance of female friendships. Scientists call this bond the tending instinct- a kind of female relaxation response that has salutary effects. Such special attachment shields women from isolation and provides an enhanced sense of wellbeing. Intimate friends can therefore act as sisters of the heart to promote connection, solace, wholeness, and longevity. Moreover, women friends frequently provide emotional, social, physical, and spiritual benefits. Indeed, sisters of the
