Guidelines for Multicultural Assessment: An Asian Indian American Case Study
Braun, Frances K.; Fine, Emily S.; Greif, Dan C.; Devenny, Jean M.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v38 n3 p130-141 Jul 2010
Accurate assessment of ethnic minority clients is often hindered by clinician bias and lack of culturally sensitive instruments. Multicultural guidelines can enhance clinician awareness and sensitivity in conducting assessments with diverse populations. These guidelines are illustrated using an Asian Indian American character from Lahiri's (2008) novel "Unaccustomed Earth." (Contains 1 figure.)
