Person-Environment Psychology and Mental Health: Assessment and Intervention

By William E. Martin Jr.; Jody L. Swartz-Kulstad | Go to book overview

The time to change is now. Change how we view culture and context as separate from the P-E, as something to be singularly recognized in the counseling session apart from who the client is. It is time for this to change. It is time for mental health professionals to gain an awareness and sensitivity to the unique individual, including cultural and contextual issues. Moreover, it is a time to recognize similarities; for too long researchers, clinicians, and the media have treated cultural groups as though they are islands, separate from other land. It is time to build bridges between those islands. Recognize people for who they are, sharing many basic characteristics, with each person using his or her best abilities to cope effectively with the environmental demands around them; hence, attempting to attain a P-E fit.
