The availability of practical applications, techniques, and case studies by international therapists is limited despite expansions to the fields of clinical psychology and counseling. As dialogues surrounding mental health grow in the East, it is important to maintain therapeutic modalities that ensure the highest level of patient-centered rehabilitation and care are met across global networks. This title is an essential reference source that discusses techniques in addressing different religions and cultures in counseling and therapy. The research in this publication provides a platform and a voice for Eastern therapists to contribute to the body of knowledge and build a more robust therapeutic framework for practitioners worldwide. Features topics such as psychotherapy, refugee counseling, and women empowerment; for mental health professionals, counselors, therapists, clinical psychologists, sociologists, social workers, researchers, students, and social science academicians.
