“An authoritative and comprehensive reference that should be read by anyone who seeks cultural competence in providing therapy to families.”

–The Family Psychologist


“Major strengths of this book are the range of groups considered, a highly readable writing style, consistency of format throughout the chapters, extensive documentation, and the relevance of content covered to typical clinical situations…A treasured resource that can serve to help explain behavior patterns that are seemingly idiosyncratic yet may be rooted in history and culture.”

–Research on Social Work Practice


I have used Ethnicity and Family therapy as a text for 12 years in my master’s level Cross-Cultural Counseling course…This text has been invaluable in my approach to teaching about the nexus of person, problems, and treatment approaches.”

–Daryl M. Rowe, PhD, Graduate School of Education and Psychology, Pepperdine University


Now in its third edition, Ethnicity and Family Therapy remains one of the essential textbooks for ddeveloping cultural competence in clinical practice. Unlike any other single book in the field, its 54 chapters provide the most comprehensive description of culture-related family issues relevant to mental health and health care. At the same time, this book wisely teaches us that our understanding of these cultural patterns must incorporate not only ethnicity, but also gender, socioeconomic status, geography, religion, race, and politics, among other factors. A ‘must-have’ tour de force.”

–Francis G. Lu, M.D., Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco and San Francisco General Hospital
