Paniagua, F. A. (2005). Assessing and Treating Culturally Diverse Clients:
A Practical Guide
(3rd Ed.).Thousand Oaks: Sage.

A bestseller in its second edition, Assessing and Treating Culturally Diverse Clients is extensively revised and updated with new materials to enhance the contents across chapters.

This book quickly summarizes key practical guidelines that all clinicians can apply when assessing, diagnosing, or treating culturally diverse clients. The author accents clinical work with African American, Hispanic, American Indian, and Asian clients. Some of the topics covered include a description of cultural variables in the DSM-IV that may affect assessment and treatment across groups; a discussion on how to apply data from culturally specific, biased measures; and a description of many of the important factors to consider during the delivery of treatment. This practical volume also offers guidelines for the prevention of attrition.
