Race, Culture, and Ethnicity in Secure Psychiatric Practice: Working with Difference

Cover
Jessica Kingsley Publishers, 2000 - 284 Seiten
People from ethnic minorities are overrepresented in secure psychiatric care, and have been reported to receive differential treatment from staff. It has been suggested that these people (especially Afro-Caribbean groups) suffer from prejudicial legal, criminal justice and psychiatric system. This text questions whether Western, white-oriented practice and systems of belief can, or should, be applied to service users from other cultural, racial, ethical or spiritual backgrounds.
