Child and adolescent psychiatrists are already serving an increasing population of culturally and ethnically diverse patients and families in their practices and in different agency settings. This article discusses adaptations to practice that enable child and adolescent psychiatrists to address the diverse clinical and cultural needs of this emerging population. Special attention is given to work in psychotherapy and in agency settings where diverse children and youth are found in large numbers.
