CASE STUDY: Cultural diversity and cognitive-behavioral therapy
Although cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) has grown in stature over the past 50 years, many people who might benefit from CBT do not receive mental health services. In the present chapter, we examine how integrating the literatures on cultural adaptation and implementation science could reduce disparities in the access to, utilization of, and engagement with effective mental health services. We present two interventions for depression within Latinx individuals to highlight how adaptations to mental health care should occur in (1) the creation and adaptation of the content and focus of the intervention itself, (2) the delivery of the intervention, and (3) the training of the interventionists. We conclude that future research will need to attend to intersectional identities and structural forces relevant to these communities. In addition, continued assessment of adaptations and provider competency is warranted. © 2023 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
