Although proven as one of the most effective evidence-based therapies, a key criticism of the theoretical framework of CBT is that it is Eurocentric, and therefore an ineffective tool for treating people from diverse cultural backgrounds. As a result, people from ethnic minority groups are often reluctant to work with therapists, who in turn do not feel confident in their ability to work effectively with them. This book is designed to enable CBT clinicians to engage people from diverse cultural backgrounds by adapting their therapeutic techniques, resulting in increased therapist confidence and much improved patient outcomes. It explores the cultural norms and expectations of groups including African Caribbean, African American, Chinese, Latino, Indian and South Asian Muslim, considering attitudes to mental illness, the role of family and wider community, and cultural barriers to engaging with therapy. Featuring an array of clinical case studies along with coverage of the most up-to-date data from CBT research in ethnic minority groups, this is an essential new resource for anyone studying or practicing CBT.
