From Psycho-Analysis to Culture-Analysis confronts the barriers that face the cross-cultural application of western psychotherapy. It puts forward an argument for applying culture analysis, in which the therapist analyses the inconsistencies within the client's culture, before applying psychoanalysis, in which the analyst analyses the intra-psychic conflicts.

The book explains through several cases how metaphors, memories, and physical environment can be used to understand and analyze the client's belief system in a culturally sensitive way that mitigates the client's resistance and avoids confrontation with the family. It is therefore invaluable for psychotherapists and psychoanalysts, as well as researchers of cross-cultural psychology.
