    Towards a Global and Cultural Psychotherapy: Theoretical Foundations and Clinical Implications provides readers with an integrated framework to understand and treat the rapidly growing number of culturally diverse clients across the globe. The book explores and builds upon an emergent cultural paradigm that posits that individuals are unknowable without an understanding of their global and cultural context. Readers learn the conceptual underpinnings of this cultural paradigm, as well as its psychotherapeutic and sociopolitical implications.

    The book is based on the core idea that meaning and context are inextricably linked and helps expand our ideas about culture beyond traditional notions of race and skin color. By emphasizing cultural and global contexts rather than ethnicity or race, the book helps bridge the gap between traditional psychology and ethnic minority psychology, emphasizing an approach that is inclusive across a broad spectrum of clients from different corners of the world. The text is interwoven with clinical vignettes, which demonstrate how cultural contexts influence the development of social processes and contain invaluable implications for treatment.

    Presenting readers with a new approach to the psychotherapeutic process, Towards a Global and Cultural Psychotherapy is an ideal resource for mental health students and practicing mental health professionals including psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers.

    This textbook is part of the Cognella Series on Advances in Culture, Race, and Ethnicity. The series, co-sponsored by Division 45 of the American Psychological Association, addresses critical and emerging issues within culture, race, and ethnic studies, as well as specific topics among key ethnocultural groups.

Dr. La Roche has served as the principal or co-principal investigator on many research projects in which he has continued to refine intervention psychotherapeutic strategies.
