Family Therapy with Ethnic Minorities

Second Edition


October 2003 | 384 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

The classic and critically acclaimed book Family Therapy with Ethnic Minorities, Second Edition has now been updated and revised to reflect the various demographic changes that have occurred in the lives of ethnic minority families and the implications of these changes for clinical practice.

 

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 authors apply these principles to working with specific ethnic minority groups, namely African Americans, Latinos, Asian/Pacific Americans, and First Nations People. Distinctive cultural values of each ethnic group are explored as well as specific guidelines and suggestions on culturally significant family therapy strategies and skills.

Key Features:

  • The revised text reflects advances in family therapy scholarship since the first edition thus ensuring for readers an up-to-date treatment of the topic
  • Accents and extends current critical constructionist theories and techniques and applies them within a culturally specific perspective
  • Pays special attention to the issues of 'historical trauma' (referred to as 'soul wound'), especially in work with First Nations Peoples and African American families

Praise for the First Edition:

"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."

About the Authors.
Key features
  • The revised text reflects advances in family therapy scholarship since the first edition thus ensuring for readers an up-to-date treatment of the topic.
  • This volume adds to the book's ecosystemic and integrative family therapy conceptual/theoretical foundations. It accents and extends current critical constructionist theories and techniques and applies them within a culturally specific perspective (i.e., latin-centric, afro-centric, native-centric, etc,) that helps family therapists manage the complexity of their clients' diverse experiences
  • Of particular note in this edition, the authors give special attention to the issues of 'historical trauma' (referred to as 'soul wound') and resulting 'ethnocultural rage,' especially in work with First Nations Peoples and African American families.
