Asian Perspectives in Counselling and Psychotherapy considers what exactly cross-cultural counselling and psychotherapy mean. Topics covered include:
* a detailed analysis of the concept of culture, and the relationship between culture and therapy
* a comparative study of Western cultures and Eastern cultures
* the historical development of counselling and psychotherapy in Western countries
* the controversies related to the problem of 'matching' clients with therapists.
Illustrated by stimulating case studies, the theoretical knowledge and practical advice presented in Asian Perspectives in Counselling and Psychotherapy will be invaluable reading to all practising and training counsellors and psychotherapists.
