Abstract

The shift of the melting pot paradigm to multiculturalism is explored. The melting pot myth relates to the fact that many groups were not permitted to assimilate. A foundation is built for the connection between psychosocial rehabilitation (PSR) and multicultural approaches. PSR interventions are to be modified to respond to differences in cultural belief systems, help-seeking behaviors, and symptom development. Recommendations are made on issues and strategies that PSR programs can utilize when starting the process of becoming culturally competent. The miracle relates to IAPSRS resources, competence, and commitment to achieve inclusivity.
