The most current and relevant best practices for working with diverse groups within Latino culture

It is estimated that in just two generations, the United States will follow Mexico with the second largest Latino population in the world. Optimistic and timely, Solving Latino Psychosocial and Health Problems addresses the social welfare of this important ethnic community. Noted expert Kurt Organista employs a practice-oriented approach to addressing the interwoven psychosocial and health-related concerns that impact this community and offers thoughtful and much-needed solutions.

This important book realistically considers the Latino community's imposing and rapidly growing population size, complex set of challenging issues, and the tremendous diversity between and within each major U.S. Latino group. Section I applies a series of highly relevant frameworks to deepen your understanding of the historical and current cultural and social experiences of diverse Latino populations in the United States, ending with a unique practice model for working with Latinos. Section II provides detailed illustrations of the best and most promising practices for working with various Latino populations.

A must-read for practitioners, students, and policy makers, Solving Latino Psychosocial and Health Problems richly embraces the distinctness of the wide range of Latino ethnic identities in the United States and provides a practical and thought-provoking resource relevant to a broad range of helping professionals.
