about this item

Latino/as make up the fastest growing ethnic minority population in the U.S., and yet the U.S. mental health workforce is not adequately trained to meet the needs of this group. As such, there is an urgent need to prepare students, supervisors and mental health professionals to effectively study, understand and meet the needs of this growing population. This volume emphasizes the diversity within this heterogeneous ethnic group from multiple psychological and socio-historical perspectives, with special attention on Latino/a group complexities and differences. It covers the historical context, cultural factors and political realities of U.S. Latino/as and their impact on mental health. Finally, it provides practical ways mental health practitioners can integrate traditional cultural values, gender role ideologies and socio-cultural factors into clinical practice with Latino/a clients, and offers promising interventions for mental health concerns.
