Filipino American Psychology
Kevin Nadal

Come hear Kevin Nadal read from his groundbreaking textbook, Filipino American Psychology: A Handbook of Theory, Research, and Clinical Practice. Filipino American Psychology offers a comprehensive look at the psyche of Filipino Americans. By examining history, cultural values, influences of colonialism, community dynamics and intersections with other identities, the reader will have an opportunity to understand essential information about this population. Students will gain knowledge and awareness about Filipino American identity and personality development, while practitioners will learn culturally-competent techniques to become better counselors, clinicians and educators. This book is the first of its kind, and aims to promote visibility of this invisible group, so that 2.4 million Filipino Americans will have their voices heard.
