This book debunks the myth of the "model-minority" status of the Chinese-American family. It further dispels the myth of the homogeneity of Chinese families. Clinicians are reminded to attune themselves not only to the varying subcultural backgrounds of Chinese-American families but also to linguistic and generational differences. At the initial assessment of a Chinese family, it is vitally important to quickly establish rapport through the application of cultural protocols. Furthermore, for U.S.-born Chinese Americans, the influence of Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism may not be as potent as for the older generation. Therefore, the treatment approach must be adjusted to fit the right family constellation.
