We live in a multicultural society, yet how well do we understand the differences that exist across cultures and how they may impact on mental health and mental health assessment? This book provides a framework for mental health professionals and students to obtain an in-depth understanding of a client whose cultural background is different from their own. Through theoretical discussion and case examples, it challenges the foundations and assumptions of Western models of mental health assessment, most notably the DSM system.
