The Handbook of Multicultural Mental Health, Second Edition, discusses the impact of cultural, ethnic, and racial variables for the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, service delivery, and development of skills for working with culturally diverse populations. Intended for the mental health practitioner, the book translates research findings into information to be applied in practice. The new edition contains more than 50% new material and includes contributions from established leaders in the field as well as voices from rising stars in the area.

Indigenous psychology (IP) shares with critical health psychology a discontent with mainstream psychology and the endeavor to offer alternative formulations of health and illness. As an alternative to the individualistic framework of health in mainstream psychology, we propose a model of the self as a multilayered concentric system. For illustration, we present a variety of indigenous traditions, with special focus on the health-related beliefs and practices in India. Implications of this alternative model of culture and self for the assessment,

Evidence-based bias reduction in low-inference and high-inference personality assessment instruments is now consensually recognized. Bias in standard psychological tests such as the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI-2), Rorschach (RCS), and Thematic Apperception Test (TAT) has been dramatically reduced. MMPI-2 deficiencies in items, norms, flawed psychometric properties, and construct meanings have been minimized in a restructured MMPI-2-RF. The Rorschach Comprehensive System (RCS) recently incorporated revised diagnostic constructs and a theoretical model of affect contributing to therapeutic feedback. In addition, the
