Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungCross-Cultural Counseling: The Arab-Palestinian Case explains the encounter between Western psychotherapy and traditional Arab society. Through empirical and case studies, you'll come to see how many of the basic techniques of Western psychotherapy are at odds with core beliefs of the Arabic culture and learn of a conceptualization in which Western psychotherapy can successfully be adapted to current traditional Arab culture. The valuable insight you'll gain into the sociopolitical background and psychocultural features of Arab people and the psychological implications of Arab traditional collectivistic society will help you be more efficient and successful and decrease drop-out rates when treating non-Western clients.
