Being Mindful about the Assessment of Culture: A Cultural Analysis of Culturally Adapted Acceptance-Based Behavior Therapy Approaches
La Roche, Martin; Lustig, Kara
Cognitive and Behavioral Practice, v20 n1 p60-63 Feb 2013
In this article we review a wide range of cultural adaptations of acceptance-based behavior therapies (ABBT) from a cultural perspective. Consistent with the cultural match model, we argue that psychotherapeutic cultural adaptations are more effective as the cultural characteristics of patients are matched to the cultural characteristics of the intervention. Cultural match model is then used to examine ABBT cultural adaptations. Overall we conclude that the studies herein included are a promising first step to develop culturally competent ABBTs.
