Practical Aspects of the East-West Concept in Family Therapy
Today the transcultural problem is increasing in importance. In earlier times, people were separated by great distances and came into contact with each other only in unusual circumstances.

Just by opening up the morning paper we step beyond the limits of our daily lives and establish contact with the problems faced by other people from varying cultural circles and groups. As a rule, we understand these events only to the extent that we are used to them from our own way of thinking. We easily tend to criticize, laugh at other people, or damn them for their alleged backwardness, naieveté, brutality, or incomprehensible lack of concerns.
