Treating Depression, Anxiety, and Stress in Ethnic and Racial Groups: Cognitive Behavioral Approaches
Download or Purchase
Depression, anxiety, and stress are responsible for an overwhelming number of mental health care visits, and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is the most common empirically supported treatment for these conditions. Yet little is known about the effectiveness of CBT with African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, and Native Americans — ethnic and racial groups conprising nearly half of the U.S. population.
In this volume, Chang, Downey, Hirsch, and Yu show therapists how to adapt cognitive behavioral treatments for use with racial and ethnic minority clients.
Contributors demonstrate how a client's particular sociocultural background contextualizes his or her experience and understanding of mental health issues. They examine the influence of sociocultural context on experiences of social anxiety among Asian-Americans, the role of racial identity in the way stress and anxiety are experienced by African American clients, and much more.
