The purpose of this chapter is to present an overview of debates, issues, and advancements in the research and assessment of psychopathology in Asian and Asian American communities. It starts by reviewing common methods of assessing psychopathology along with the specific cultural considerations that are associated with applying such methods with Asian and Asian American clients. It also highlights the limitations and challenges associated with existing assessment methods when used with Asian and Asian American populations to familiarize clinicians and researchers about important issues to be aware of in applying available diagnostic tools. Finally, the chapter presents a three- step model for clinicians and scientists to minimize cultural barriers when choosing an appropriate assessment approach for Asian and Asian American clients.
