In the spring of 1992, the National Institute of Mental Health sponsored a conference at which a multidisciplinary panel of distinguished experts delivered theoretical and conceptual papers addressing the theme of "Hispanic Mental Health Research: A State of the Art Review." Their contributions are elaborated in this volume, representing the fields of psychology, psychiatry, anthropology, and epidemiology. These chapters focus on research issues in two broad areas: cross-cultural and acculturative issues in mental health, and culture in mental health evaluation and treatment. Acculturation is discussed as a psychological process involving cognitive, attitude, and behavior change. Acculturatively induced stress is linked to the development of anxiety, depression, and alcohol/substance abuse. The later chapters turn directly to the relevance of culture and acculturation to mental health services, including the diagnosis of psychiatric disorders, the manifestation of symptomatology, and the effectiveness of psychotherapeutic interventions.

(UNIQUE ASPECTS OF BOOK) Contributions from a panel of distinguished experts, addressing the theme "Hispanic Mental Health Research" offer the following: *Current theoretical and conceptual issues are posed and discussed critically. *Each chapter is a multidisciplinary blend of psychology, psychiatry, anthopology, and epidemiology. *Acculturatively induced stress is linked to the development of anxiety, and alcohol/substance abuse. *Culture and acculturation are organizing themes. "...impressive in its scope and, actually, its title does little justice to the breadth both theoretical and pragmatic, of most of its chapters." -- Renato D. Alarcon, M.D., Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease.
