-- Presents innovative models for more accurately assessing the intelligence and personality of culturally and linguistically diverse children, and for more effectively treating them.
-- Promotes a new role for the psychologist or mental health professional as a consultant to parents, teachers, and special education prevention specialists.
-- Includes case examples that demonstrate what is gained by using more culturally sensitive assessment and treatment practices.
The book's underlying philosophy is that to successfully intervene with a culturally diverse child, a therapist must understand the values and beliefs inherent in the child's cultural upbringing and must utilize intervention strategies that are culturally sensitive.
Reflecting ten years of cross cultural practice and research with children of various linguistic and cultural backgrounds, this volume offers a comprehensive, eclectic approach to assessment, treatment, teaching, consultation, and research with culturally diverse children. Many strategies and models are described here in enough detail to enable mental health and educational professionals to put them into practice immediately.
