Summary "Clients in psychodynamic therapy come from all ethnic and cultural backgrounds, as do therapists, yet cross-cultural issues are often oversimplified or ignored in clinical practice and training. This much-needed book is designed to deepen clinicians' understanding of multiculturalism and help them incorporate awareness of diversity into all phases of treatment from referral and assessment to working through and termination. Experienced psychotherapist and social work educator Judith Mishne presents a practice model that emphasizes the need to attend to the clinician's own culturally informed beliefs and behaviors, as well as those of the patient. Offering clear guidance for understanding and navigating the intersubjective issues that arise in cross-cultural work, the book provides critical knowledge and skills to guide the delivery of effective psychotherapeutic services."--BOOK JACKET
