People and cultures of Hawaii : a psychocultural profile by John F., Jr., Ed Mcdermott( Book )
7 editions published between 1980 and 1984 in English and held by 437 libraries worldwide
Following an introduction in which the concept of culture in its various aspects is defined, this 1980 book deals with major ethnic groups in Hawaii in the order of their arrival in the state, with a chapter devoted to each. The story of each group discusses the history of immigration, traditional culture, stereotypes that need clarification, the contemporary situation of the group in Hawaii (and in some cases, the homeland), and mental health issues particular to the group. Cultural and psychological dimensions are thus seen in relation to mental health and the problems of living in an interethnic society. Acculturation and problems of adjustment to life in Hawaii are discussed. Attitudes toward education and educational attainment are discussed for most of the ethnic groups. The following chapters present group profiles and general information about assimilation and cultural patterns: (1) "Introduction" (John F. McDermott, Jr.); (2) "The Hawaiians" (Benjamin B.C. Young); (3) "The Caucasians" (Thomas W. Maretzki and John F. McDermott, Jr.); (4) "The Chinese" (Walter F. Char, Wen-Shing Tseng, Kwong-Yen Lum, and Jing Hsu); (5) "The Japanese" (Terence A. Rogers and Satoru Izutsu); (6) "The Portuguese" (Eugene W. Carvalho); (7) "The Okinawans" (William P. Lebra); (8) "The Koreans" (Young Sook Kim Harvey and Soon-Hyung Chung); (9) "The Filipinos" in three parts: "Introduction: The Philippine Background" (Danilo E. Ponce), "Hawaii's Immigrants from the Philippines" (Sheila Forman), and "Mental Health Implications" (Danilo E. Ponce); (10) "The Samoans" (Richard A. Markoff and John R. Bond); (11) "The People of Indochina" in three parts: "Introduction" (Cheryl Tack), "The Vietnamese" (Nguyen Dang Liem and Dean F. Kehmeier), and "The Hmong from Laos" (Bruce Thowpaou Bliatout); and (12) "Toward an Interethnic Society" (John F. McDermott, Jr.). (Contains 235 references.) (Sld)

Handbook of cultural psychiatry by Wen-Shing Tseng( Book )
13 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 220 libraries worldwide
Cultural psychiatry is primarily concerned with the transcultural aspects of mental health related to human behavior, psychopathology and treatment. At a clinical level, cultural psychiatry aims to promote culturally relevant mental health care for patients of diverse ethnic or cultural backgrounds. From the standpoint of research, cultural psychiatry is interested in studying how ethnic or cultural factors may influence human behavior and psychopathology as well as the art of healing. On a theoretical level, cultural psychiatry aims to expand the knowledge and theories about mental health-related human behavior and mental problems by widening the sources of information and findings transculturally, and providing cross-cultural validation. This work represents the first comprehensive attempt to pull together the clinical, research and theoretical findings in a single volume. Key Features * Written by a nationally and internationally well-known author and scholar * The material focuses not only on the United States but also on various cultural settings around the world so that the subject matter can be examined broadly from universal as well as cross-cultural perspectives * Proper combination of clinical practicalities and conceptual discussion * Serves as a major source for use in the training of psychiatric residents and mental health personnel as well as students of behavior science in the areas of culture and mental health * A total of 50 chapters with detailed cross-referencing * Nearly 2000 references plus an appendix of almost 400 books * 130 tables and figures

Clinician's guide to cultural psychiatry by Wen-Shing Tseng( Book )
13 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 213 libraries worldwide
Increasingly, psychologists are becoming aware of sensitivity needs with respect to treating patients from differing cultures. Culture can play an important role both in what a patient discloses about themselves, how likely they are to follow a therapist's advice, and whether specific therapies are likely to be effective for them. Following on the heels of Tseng's "Handbook of Cultural Psychiatry" comes this "Clinical Application of Cultural Psychiatry." This more concise book focuses on information most relevant to treating patients. The book discusses how culture plays a role in specific disorders (depression, anxiety, eating and sexual disorders, substance abuse, schizophrenia, etc.). relevant sensitivities to keep in mind in treating specific patient populations (age groups, differing religions, and differing ethnicity's). * Written by a nationally and internationally recognized scholar, clinician, and author * Has the proper combination of knowledge, skill, and conceptual discussion for clinical practicalities * Provides comprehensive and systematic coverage of major topics for clinical application * Enhanced by more than 120 tables and figures and nearly 30 case illustrations * Will serve as a major textbook in the training of psychiatric residents and clinical psychologists

"This book addresses the urgent need for knowledge and advice for culturally relevant practice in the context of forensic psychiatry.

A collaboration among a cultural psychiatrist, a forensic psychiatrist, and an attorney, this text addresses the issues surrounding the emerging field of transcultural-forensic psychiatry and is designed for scholars and practitioners in a wide range of disciplines involved in forensic mental health."--Jacket
