John J. Hartman

The author's main aim is to refute the notion that Western psychotherapy, including psychoanalysis, can be applied only in Western cultures. Bloom also criticizes the notion of cultural relativism. He presents three psychotherapy cases of Nigerian undergraduates and concludes that his psychotherapy in Nigeria was similar to his work in London. Finally, he discusses the therapist's stance toward social change, societal definitions of abnormality, and the dangers of latent racism in overemphasizing cultural factors. He concludes with a view of psychotherapy which emphasizes the influence of culture on patients without accepting the impossibility of a Western therapist understanding the personal dilemmas of a patient from a non-Western culture.
