Massive demographic changes have coincided with rise of the importance of evidence-based treatment across the health sciences and widespread awareness of the failure of psychology to address and serve the mental health needs of historically underrepresented groups. Researchers, theorists, and clinicians demand that empirically supported treatments be adapted to better address and better “fit” clinical needs. Based on existing approaches in the literature, this dissertation presents a four-part model of cultural adaptation of psychological interventions and reviews 101 current culturally adapted empirically supported treatments through the lens of this model. The dissertation project comprehensively describes the current state of the field in terms of the theoretical bases, processes, and outcomes of culturally adapted psychotherapy and psychosocial interventions in the context of evidence-based practice, provides suggestions, and illuminates implications for future research and practice.
