"Mental Health Professionals, Minorities, and the Poor" provides mental health professionals with information essential to the accurate assessment and effective treatment of diverse populations. Focusing on social, political, and economic aspects--often-overlooked factors that impact mental health--Michael Illovsky compels clinicians to reconsider the currently available treatment models and proposes a new model that takes into consideration the increasing significance of culture in counseling and therapy. With world populations becoming increasingly heterogeneous, and interactions among people from different cultures steadily increasing, as inevitably they must, this book is a critical resource for ethnic minorities in treatment, their friends and relatives concerned with their welfare, and students and professionals faced with the challenge of treating diverse populations.

Résumé
