Abstract

This article uses a case example to highlight some of the complexities of working with minority ethnic families. It addresses the dilemmas that exist for therapists and other professionals when carrying out cross-cultural assessments of parenting. In this article, we will examine how professionals' constructions impacted on the assessment process with regard to family life, culture and mental health. We will draw out implications for clinical practice in this area.
