A Working Model of Cross-Cultural Clinical Practice (CCCP)edit
A long-standing gap between clinical and cultural practice can lead clinicians to feel overwhelmed by the task of integrating clinical practice with a culturally sensitive approach, while working toward changes in clients’ lives. This article attempts to assist clinicians in their efforts to achieve this task. Using a Task-Analysis approach in the alliance research (Safran et al. 1994), this article discusses the development of Cross-Cultural Clinical Practice and proposes a detailed working model for its possible application. A case example is presented to highlight key components of the model. Limitations and implications of the model in clinical social work practice are also described.
