Writing for medical practitioners, Paniagua (psychiatry and behavioral sciences, U. of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston) provides integrative and practical information intended to help them understand what they should and should not do to avoid discrimination in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of African American, American Indian, Asian and Hispanic clients. He examines the concepts behind perceptions of minority status, multiculturalism, race, and ethnicity, and gives guidelines for practice with culturally diverse clients. He also addresses the use of epidemiological mental health literature with culturally diverse clients, describes culturally biased instruments, and closes by describing how to use cultural variables in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
