As the demographics shift within the US population, the importance of culture on mental health diagnosis and treatment has become critical for education and clinical training in psychiatry. While it's impossible to gain an in-depth understanding of every culture, clinicians need to have the skills and knowledge required to provide culturally respectful care for an increasingly diverse clinical population. By explaining fundamental concepts in cultural psychiatry using a case-based format, clinicians and educators in the mental health fields will be able to reduce cultural clashes and unproductive clinical encounters. Although similar books have focused on providing guidelines for working with discrete populations (e.g., African Americans, Asian Americans, LGBTQ), the purpose of Sociocultural Issues in Psychiatry is to enhance clinicians' knowledge and skills by translating theory into practice across diverse patient populations and clinical contexts. Mental health clinicians at all levels, trainees, or practitioners, will benefit from the content and education provided in this book.

"Getting her fortune told by a Taiwanese 'belly-button grandmother' (who feels up her navel) instead of attending the spring dance is just one of the joys of being Patty Ho, a covertly snarky 'hapa' (half Asian, half white) struggling with her dual heritage. Patty's domineering mother is determined to make her a good Taiwanese girl. Gangly Patty, no 'China doll,' longs to be white like her long-gone father...readers will find a compelling narrative, and a spunky, sympathetic heroine. This book should enjoy wide appeal." -VOYA

Thanks to her crisis-manager parents, she doesn't just have to wear layers of clothes and spaceship-sized hat. She has to avoid all hint of light. Say goodbye to windows and running outdoors. Even her phone becomes a threat.
Viola is determined to maintain a normal life, particularly after she meets Josh. He's a funny, talented Thor look-alike with his own mysterious grief. But their romance makes her take more risks, and when a rebellion against her parents backfires dangerously, she must find her way to a life -- and love -- as deep and lovely as her dreams.

girlfriend is ruining their friendship, and her own so-called
boyfriend is only after her for her father's name. When her broken
heart results in a snowboarding accident that exiles her from the
mountains-the one place where she feels free and accepted for who
she is, not what she has-can Syrah rehab both her busted-up knee,
"and" her broken heart?
