Abstract

Prior to the l960's, very little interest had been shown in researching patterns of American utilization of mental health facilities. The notion of culturally different patterns of psychological “normalcy” for Asian Americans as a distinct population had not been adequately explored. Although a few case studies of Asian-American patients did appear in the literature from time to time, no extensive or systematic research into the demographic and psychological characteristics of Asian-American patient populations had been presented.
