They examine the unique characteristics of, and the use of CBT with various racial, ethnic, and religious minority groups in the United States including Latinx, Asian Americans, African Americans, American Indians, Alaska natives, Arabs, and Orthodox Jews. Strategies for using CBT with older adults, individuals with disabilities, and LGBTQ clients are also examined. A chapter on culturally responsive CBT clinical supervision closes this volume.
