Abstract and Keywords

This chapter critically evaluates treatments for internalizing and externalizing disorders in ethnic minority youth based on empirically supported treatment criteria and the methodological robustness of the scientific evidence. There continues to be no well-established treatment for externalizing or internalizing disorders in ethnic minority youth. There continues to be no evidence that treatments are robust across cultures and subcultures, and there is a lack of attention to explanatory variables (e.g., acculturation, cultural orientation, values). In the meantime, an articulation for providers is suggested based on data about putative mediators of change and best practices for working in the contexts of cultural diversity. For researchers, the chapter articulates four avenues believed to be the core to advancing treatment science for ethnic minority youth.

Keywords: ethnic minority youth, evidence-based treatment, empirically supported treatment, externalizing disorders, internalizing disorders
