312 Book ReviewsA STRANGER IN THE FAMILY. CULTURE, FAMILIES AND THERAPY Vincenzo DiNicolaW.W. Norton & Co. New York, 1997. Pp. 380, Hb. bibl; index £33.00. ISBN 0-393-70228-6 SAGE Publications, Inc.1998DOI: 10.1177/002076409804400409 Inga-Britt Krause The Marlborough Family Service, London Vincenzo DiNicola is a transcultural child psychiatrist and a family therapist who is well known in either field for his papers on cross cultural practice. This book synthesises much of his previous writing and presents an overview of his clinical work and the theoretical thoughts which support and guide his practice. The book is comprehensive, sometimes repetitive but always forthright and honest and at times touching. DiNicola makes culture a central focus and emphasises cross cultural encounters. In the process he has much to say about family therapy generally and about the practice of child psychiatry which inevitably implicates not only individual children but also families. From this point of view the book stands as an important contribution to the development of a cross culturally valid, and therefore truly theoretically sound, clinical practice. DiNicola makes use of autobiographical material. The "stranger" refers not only to the therapist in a cross-cultural encounter or to the estrangement often experienced by identified patients, http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Social Psychiatry SAGE
