Clinical Diagnosis among Diverse Populations: A Multicultural Perspective.
Solomon, Alison
Families in Society, v73 n6 p371-77 Jun 1992
Discusses four ways in which clinical diagnosis can be detrimental to minority clients: (1) cultural expressions of symptomatology; (2) unreliable research instruments; (3) clinician bias; and (4) institutional racism. Recommendations to avoid misdiagnosis begin with accurate assessment of a client's history and cultural background. (SLD)
