This book discusses the rationale for providing culturally responsive clinical training in psychology; model predoctoral training programs for minorities; and model internship, community, and postdoctoral training programs for minorities. Ethnic minority populations of chronically mentally ill children, adolescents, adults, and elderly persons are especially in need of the professional services of cross-culturally competent psychologists from all ethnic backgrounds.
