Cultural Adaptations: Tools for Evidence-Based Practice With Diverse Populations 2012 Edited by Guillermo Bernal, PhD and Melanie M. Domenech Rodríguez, PhD
“The unifying theoretical framework of this volume promotes culturally adapted EBPs as productive and empirically viable approaches to treating ethnic minorities and culturally diverse groups. Chapter authors describe cultural adaptations of conventional EBPs for a variety of psychological problems across a wide range of cultures and ethnicities — Latino/as, Chinese, African Americans, and American Indians among them.”
Research for the Public Good: Applying the Methods of Translational Research to Improve Human Health and Well-Being 2012 Edited by Elaine Wethington, PhD and Rachel E. Dunifon, PhD
“This book demonstrates how emerging methods of translational research can be applied to important topics of interest to social and behavioral scientists. Accessible models and real-world case studies are provided to help bridge the gaps among research, policy, and practice. Social and behavioral sciences now often contribute to public- and individual-level interventions that promote education, disease prevention, health care delivery, health care access, and more. This broader, more inclusive approach to translational research has gained popularity and been promoted by the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control, medical centers, and university programs.”
