This book illustrates the multifaceted applications of clinical psychology in multi-cultural contexts. It considers people's emotional, cognitive, interpersonal and psychological development across their lifespans. The book explores nine multicultural clinical cases that illustrate clinical assessment, biopsychosocial formulation, and evidence-based therapy. Further, it provides therapy outcomes for diverse clients throughout their lifespans, e.g. for cognitive behavioral therapy, integrative therapy, and narrative therapy; and examines clinical findings on e.g. social and emotional development, family trauma, child sexual abuse and its impact, as well as culturally sensitive assessment and interventions for a range of mental health issues. Further cases focus on co-morbid conditions, and physical ailments, across the lifespan. Bringing together contributions from both academics and practitioners, the book illustrates practical applications of theories and concepts relevant to the practice of clinical psychology. It also reviews the relevant literature with clinical recommendations and provides multicultural perspectives and insights into contemporary clinical approaches from experienced clinical supervisors and practitioners, who are also academics and educators in the field. Accordingly, the book is a valuable asset for students, academics, researchers and practitioners, as well as for postgraduate clinical training.
