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 peoples, 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
  • 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 peoples, 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
  • References are thorough and completely up-to-date

From the Back Cover:

Consideration of culture in health research, practice and policy is an imperative in culturally pluralistic societies of the global village. This handbook provides a comprehensive discussion on the role of culture in health, and offers an authoritative resource on culturally competent approaches to research, practice, and policy in health and illness behavior. The editors of the handbook and their distinguished contributors describe cultural aspects of the promotion and maintenance of health, the prevention and treatment of ill-health, the understanding of the etiologic and diagnostic correlates of illness, disability and handicap, and advance culturally relevant health research, practice, and policy. All chapters include case study boxes with questions for discussion, summary, thorough and an up-to-date references, and lists of suggested readings. This handbook is essential reading for health care researchers, practitioners, students, and policy-makers. A culturally relevant psychology of health and a culturally competent health care system is the social, ethical and legal imperative of a culturally diverse community in the global village.
