In discussing transcultural functional analytic psychotherapy (FAP), the treatment of clients from culturally diverse backgrounds, we draw upon not only the experiences of FAP therapists outside the United States (e.g., CarrascosoCarrascoso, 2003; FerroFerro, Valero, Valero & VivesVives, 2006; LópezLópez, Ferro, Ferro & CalvilloCalvillo, 2002; FerroFerro, ValeroValero, & López BermúdezLópez Bermúdez, 2009), but also the booming literature on cultural competence and multiculturalism. Decades of work in the latter area have spawned profound reflection (Sue S. Sue & ZaneZane, 1987; Sue W.D. Sue & Sue D. Sue, 2003; FowersFowers & DavidovDavidov, 2006), practical guidelines American Psychological Association, 2000; American Psychological AssociationAmerican Psychological Association, 2002), and comprehensive strategies for adapting treatments to multicultural populations (HaysHays, 2001; HwangHwang, 2007; HaysHays & IwamasaIwamasa, 2006; HintonHinton, 2006).
