Sep 28, 2022 | Psychology


Currently there is no evidence-based framework for culturally adapting CBT for clients from the NonWestern cultural background. We adapted CBT for black and ethnic minority communities in the UK and local population in Pakistan. This paper describes the framework that evolved from this work, with a focus on the process of adaptation, details of methods used and the areas that need to be focused in order to culturally adapt CBT in a given culture.
