Abstract
Adolescent Identity Treatment: An Integrative Approach for Personality Pathology is a groundbreaking title that provides general and specific clinical strategies to help adolescents who lack an integrated identity. The authors have developed a treatment based on the integration of object relations theory, family systems, attachment, developmental neurobiology and cognitive behavioral approaches that focuses on clearing blockages to normal identity development and adaptive functioning. While most adolescents build satisfying interpersonal relationships, are successful in school and work, and begin romantic relationships, there is a minority of adolescents who do not succeed in this and are at a high risk of developing problems in school, work, and relationships, problems with affect regulation as well as engaging in a wide range of self-destructive behaviors. In addition to a description of the disorder and assessment, this manual offers extensive clinical examples and concrete interventions, with phase-specific treatment components, including a clear treatment frame, psychoeducation, environmental interventions (with a "Home Plan" that addresses self-care behaviors, responsibilities and improved boundaries that fosters the development of better relationships between the adolescent and family), and parenting strategies, all in the service of creating a space for the individual work with the adolescent.

Communication Skills for Foreign and Mobile Medical Professionals will be of benefit to a wide range of medical professionals, from senior nursing staff through to heads of department, in multilingual or intercultural contexts.

Abstract
Contemporary psychodynamic theory profoundly impacts our understanding of the development of psychopathology in young patients. However, while much has been written about this theory's influence on the psychotherapy techniques used with adults, little attention has been paid to its practical clinical applications in psychotherapeutic work with children and adolescents. This book explains how the new concepts derived from contemporary psychodynamic theory have made it necessary to revise our understanding of and approach to young patients in psychotherapy. It reviews the recent contributions from contemporary two-person relational psychodynamic theory and employs detailed case examples to bring to life this theory's practical applications in child and adolescent psychotherapy. Psychotherapists and students of psychotherapy will find this book a valuable source of information on contemporary psychodynamic theory and a useful resource for introducing a contemporary style into their practice, co-constructing with the patient a narrative to achieve the desired goals.

Abstract
Cultural Competence in Health Care A Guide for Professionals Wen-Shing Tseng, University of Hawaii, Honolulu Jon Streltzer, University of Hawaii, Honolulu Between a growing pan-ethnic patient base, the need to solve inequalities of care, and the clinical desirability of viewing clients in their entirety, applied cultural knowledge is emerging as a major goal of clinical and public health practice. Cultural Competence in Health Care offers a wealth of this crucial knowledge with emphasis on day-to-day clinical work. Authors Tseng and Streltzer, well-known experts on transcultural medicine and therapy, start by differentiating between disease and illness and advise on a range of practical matters, from discussing culturally sensitive subjects to negotiating compromises between traditional healing and established medicine, so that readers will gain both useful working techniques and valuable empathy with clients. Case studies highlight medical issues as they apply to various minority (and majority) groups, and eight insightful chapters reveal cultural dimensions expressed in: Concepts of illness and illness behaviors. Assessment, interviews, and symptom presentation. Hospitalization, medication, family involvement, consent issues. Highly charged medical areas, e.g., pain management, transfusions, reproductive issues, organ donation. Frequently stigmatized conditions such as AIDS, STDs, cancer, and psychiatric disorders. Care by non-medical professionals, including social workers, physical therapists, and nutritionists. Cultural Competence in Health Care is equally suited to use by practitioners and students in medicine, psychology, nursing, social work, and affiliated fields. And since it's one of the only practice-oriented books on the topic, cross-cultural courses in training programs will find it especially useful.
