Get to know the Indians in your life better! Whether they are your patients, clients, friends, neighbors, colleagues, or are a part of your community, South Asians make up a distinct culture and this book can help you understand this population from the inside.
This book of essays takes an informal and, I hope, gentle look into South Asian homes, hearts, and homeland in an attempt to help mental health practitioners have a more complete understanding of their Indian clients. My aim is that these stories, anecdotes, and social and psychological sketches open the door to more pertinent clinical conversations. Just as there is no mother without a child, there is no Indian individual without the family. The focus of western psychotherapy has been on the individual and individuation. My book expands the picture to include the importance of Indian society, family, and culture as an equally, if not more important, path to helping Indian immigrant patients get more clarity from helping professionals.
Whose Baby Is It, Anyway? will be published in the winter of 2018, check back soon for more availability and purchase information.
