This issue of FOCUS joins a small but growing body of work that helps clinicians, educators, and trainees bring culture into the clinical encounter. Several teaching tools are available that explicate both the content and process of using the Outline. First, the Cultural Psychiatry Committee of the Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry published a monograph on the Outline and illustrated its use in six clinical cases (15). Second, Harriet Koskoff, a filmmaker, created a 58-minute training videotape/DVD (16) with 23 multicultural, multidisciplinary mental health professionals commenting on the five sections of the Outline. Third, approximately 17 clinical cases demonstrating the use of the Outline have been published in the quarterly journal Culture, Medicine, and Psychiatry since 1995, including a number of excellent teaching cases (17—20). Finally, the Clinical Manual of Cultural Psychiatry (21) represents the collected wisdom from 10 years of teaching an APA annual meeting course on the use of the Outline with patients from minority racial/ethnic groups; it includes an appendix with a detailed inventory of specific approaches and questions clinicians can use to obtain information for each of the five components of the Outline.
