9780124027718: Handbook of Cultural Health Psychology

The "Handbook of Cultural Health Psychology" discusses the influence of cultural beliefs, norms and values on illness, health and health care. The major health problems that are confronting the global village are discussed from a cultural perspective. These include heart disease, cancer, HIV/AIDS, pain, and suicide. The cultural beliefs and practices of several cultural groups and the unique health issues confronting them are also presented. The cultural groups discussed include Latinos, Aboriginal people, people of African heritage, and South Asians. The handbook contributes to increased personal awareness of the role of culture in health and illness behavior, and to the delivery of culturally relevant health care services. Many societies are culturally diverse or becoming so - the cultural approach is a unique and necessary addition to the health psychology area. It satisfies the ever-increasing appetite of health psychologists for cultural issues in health and women's health issues. Major and global health concerns are covered including heart disease, cancer, HIV/AIDS, pain, suicide, and health promotion. The health beliefs and practices of Latinos, people of African heritage, Aboriginal people, and South Asians are presented without stereotyping these cultural groups. The handbook provides excellent information for health care researchers, practitioners, students, and policy-makers in culturally pluralistic communities. The references are thorough and completely up-to-date.

Review:

"The Handbook of Cultural Health Psychology edited by Shah Kazarian and David Evans is a bold attempt to define a new hybrid field within a now mature subdiscipline of health psychology by examining both theoretical and applied issues. This complex but extremely informative and useful text... succeed[s] in many ways... Throughout the book one finds excellent examples of culturally tailored interventions..." -CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY "This book highlights the relationship between culture and health psychology. For mental health professionals health psychology is a key approach to health promotion and maintenance as well as treatment rehabilitation and prevention of ill health... Each chapter in the book ends with a case history which is useful in putting together key elements of the chapter. This book is a useful addition to the expanding field of cultural psychology and cultural psychiatry." -INTERNATIONAL REVIEW OF PSYCHIATRY
