Personality Development and Psychotherapy in Our Diverse Society comprehensively explores the vicissitudes of culture, ethnicity, language, gender, and social class as contextual influences on personality development, psychopathology, and the provision of mental health services in our pluralistic society. Professors Javier and Herron achieve a balanced presentation of the issues by including contributions from renowned scholars, practitioners, and researchers whose analyses lead to different views on the roles of different factors. I applaud the editors' success in creating in a single volume an integrated multicultural perspective for analyzing complex relationships. It should be required reading for those interested in cultural diversity and mental health and especially for those who provide mental health services. -- June Chisolm, Ph.D., Pace University This book is an important contribution to the literature in multiculturalism and mental health. Anyone who does not consult it will miss the opportunity to be informed by intelligent and responsible professionals. -- Robert Rieber, Ph.D., John Jay College of Criminal Justice and CUNY Graduate Center
