Culture, Psychotherapy, and Counseling

Critical and Integrative Perspectives

Lisa Tsoi Hoshmand,

Culture, Psychotherapy, and Counseling: Critical and Integrative Perspectives
 
 

Culture, Psychotherapy, and Counseling: Critical and Integrative Perspectives takes a comprehensive approach to culture as it relates to psychological practice. By viewing psychotherapy and counseling as science-based cultural enterprises, this book expands the understanding of culture in terms of the politics of identity, symbolic and practice meanings, moral ontology, and global realities. Editor Lisa Tsoi Hoshmand brings together a diverse group of authors to present different accounts and case examples of their work as practitioners to illustrate the integration of the personal with the professional. A variety of theoretical and clinical issues are discussed, including psychological trauma, depression, chronic illness, and other problems presented by clients for whom a culturally informed practice is essential.   

Key Features:

  • Offers a comprehensive framework for the integration of psychotherapy and counseling as a science-based cultural enterprise
  • Examines the social and moral implications of psychotherapy and counseling by applying feminist, hermeneutic, and relational perspectives
  • Includes case studies to demonstrate the culturally constructed nature of practice
  • Exposes readers to non-Western and holistic perspectives, such as Buddhist and Hawaiian psychology, to provide a global context of culture and identity in the contemporary world 
  • Provides a reflective, developmental approach to evaluating oneself and one’s work within the traditions of Western psychological theory and practice

Culture, Psychotherapy, and Counseling is an excellent textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on counseling and psychotherapy focusing on culture in the fields of Counseling and Clinical Psychology, Social Work, and Psychiatry. It is also a valuable resource for psychotherapists, counseling practitioners, clinical social workers, psychiatrists, and other human service professionals.  Throughout the book, the authors critically examine the social and moral implications of psychotherapy and counseling, including applying feminist and hermeneutic perspectives to the therapeutic enterprise.  Suggestions are made for a culturally based integration of the field, followed by recommendations for training.
