Benessere Psicologico: Contemporary Thought on Italian American Mental Health, edited by Dominick Carielli and Joseph Grosso, includes essays by Kathryn Alessandria, Christina Bruni, Donna Chirico, Donna DiCello, Gil Fagiani, Richard Gambino, Fred Gardaphé, Lucia Imbesi, Dana Kaspereen-Guidicipietro, Maria Kopacz, Lorraine Mangione, Rachel McBride, Anthony Tasso, and Jennifer Tursi. The multicultural counseling movement, which began to flourish in the 1970s, put the melting pot theory to rest and paved the way for a focus on ethnic identity. Notably absent, however, has been research and discourse on white ethnic groups. With regard to Italian Americans, "Benessere Psicologico: Contemporary Thought on Italian American Mental Health" is an attempt to fill some of that void. The chapters herein cover a wide range of topics and viewpoints, from personal essays on experiences in therapy to theory and practice. This volume is an invaluable resource for both the researcher and practitioner, and an essential tool for any clinician working with the Italian American population.
