Abstract

Inquiries over the past three decades have shown that ethnic minorities drop out of treatment early and tend to have poorer outcomes in psychotherapy. Despite the widespread acceptance that culturally responsive therapy and programs will produce better treatment outcomes for ethnic minorities, few studies have empirically tested this proposition. This paper reviews two types of interventions, ethnic match and parallel programs, to make the mental health system more responsive to the needs of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
