Description
B>" Written to help family therapy professionals and students understand issues that affect clinical treatment of Hispanic Americans, this book highlights the diversity of the people who make up the fabric of what is commonly referred to as "Latino culture." The terms "Hispanic" and "Latino" are used interchangeably to refer to descendants of people whose primary language is Spanish or Portuguese. Most of the chapter contributors are Hispanic or bicultural, and contribute their own personal stories to enhance their narratives. The authors point out, "Recognizing differences that count and developing that essential curiosity about the experience of another is at the heart of each author's therapeutic approach." The book covers interventions, identity formation of men and women in the Hispanic culture, demographics, and specific information on health care, spirituality, and other issues that affect Hispanic family life. Chapters 4 and 5 focus on how therapists from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds can be effective in dealing with Latinos/Hispanics in family therapy. Market: "For social workers, counselors, and other helping professionals and volunteers who want to relate to Hispanic clients more effectively.
