Chapter Summary

The definition of hybridity utilized in this chapter is informed by the work of Homi Bhabha:. More specifically, this chapter argues for a space to include ethnic pluralism and racial corporeality in the development and implementation of assessment and intervention frameworks within the discourse of mental health. Although a number of indigenous health frameworks have been developed, it is beyond the scope of this chapter to address them all. One may argue that black pearls are as beautiful as white pearls, and white swans are no more elegant than black swans. In this chapter, it is proposed to put forward some suggestions that might be a useful starting point for actually engaging more closely with cultural diversity in terms of the process of engagement with respect to assessments and intervention initiatives with bi/multiracial women.
