Cross-Cultural Caring, 2nd Edition

A Handbook for Health Professionals, Second Edition

Cross-Cultural Caring: A Handbook for Health Professionals, Second Edition describes Vietnamese, Cambodian, Laotian, Chinese, Japanese, Iranian, South Asian, and Central American ethno-cultural groups. It stresses the need to understand both the cultural beliefs and daily life issues facing immigrants, such as work, income, child-rearing, and aging, all of which impinge on health. Each chapter describes one ethno-cultural group, discussing such issues as childbirth, mental illness, dental care, hospitalization, and death, as well as home country culture, common reasons for emigrating, and challenges in adjusting to a new culture. With its wealth of practical information, this book will be particularly useful to those working directly with immigrants and refugees, such as health care providers and administrators, teachers and school administrators, and social workers, as well as medical students, sociologists, and anthropologists.

"The tales all together provide a wonderful vista of the social life and the cultural imagination of China in the early seventeenth century. It is almost impossible to think of classes on any aspect of the culture of late-imperial China that would not find these translations extremely useful."—Wilt Idema, Harvard University
