Culture and Health : A Critical Perspective Towards Global Health, Paperback / softback Book

Culture and Health : A Critical Perspective Towards Global Health Paperback / softback


Most Western health professionals practice in multicultural societies.

The influence of culture on illness, health and rehabilitation is therefore very important.

Despite this, most lower level health psychology texts skim over these differences and assume our traditional biomedical approach will be appropriate for all.

In this completely revised and updated edition of a groundbreaking book, Malcolm MacLachlan redresses the balance by showing how social and cultural aspects interact with the purely physical: from assessment and treatment all the way through to effects on rehabilitation.
