Edited by Dana C. Jack and Alisha Ali

  • Situates self-silencing theory within larger frameworks by examining other models for women's depression and incorporating cognitive, behavioral, neurological, and biomedical perspectives into the cultural model
  • Presents a theory and methodology for conducting research in culture and drepression that addresses the inherent difficulties involved
