Summary

Discover intervention strategies for issues affecting Asian Americans!

This important book examines the childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, and aging stages of Asian Americans to help researchers and practitioners offer better services to this ethnic group. Psychosocial Aspects of the Asian-American Experience will help you understand the ethnic and cultural diversity within the Asian-American population and offers both quantitative and qualitative research that may impact social policies and social services for Asian Americans.

Representing Chinese, Japanese, Filipinos, Koreans, Asian Indians, Vietnamese, Hmong, Cambodians, and native-born Hawaiians, this helpful book covers a wide span of individual ethnic identities in order to represent the scope of the Asian-American subculture.

The topics and problems examined in Psychosocial Aspects of the Asian-American Experience include:
  • ethnic identity, acculturation, and cultural orientation
  • psychological adjustment of adoptees
  • attitudes and behavior of adolescents regarding academic achievement
  • social network composition
  • depression and other mental health problems
  • dating violence and domestic abuse
  • substance abuse
  • aging

    In addition to analyzing these problems, this book also presents culturally competent intervention strategies to assist human services practitioners in offering their clients relevant services that are appropriate for their ethnic backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences. This book is also a valuable resource for researchers, policymakers, and graduate students and faculty members in the areas of social work, sociology, psychology, and ethnic studies.
