About this title


This book represents an important contribution to the literature on multiculturalism and psychology and provides valuable tools and insights for working with Latino families. Employing an accessible and original multidimensional approach, Falicov presents effective clinical strategies for addressing issues that frequently confront Latino families--including different migration histories, experiences of racial discrimination, and dilemmas that can result from adapting to a new cultural setting. Through in-depth case illustrations, the author demonstrates that Latinos in the United States are a heterogeneous population from many countries, with a diverse array of belief systems and socioeconomic backgrounds. Yet, some widely shared concerns and traditions are discernible. Readers will learn how to become more sensitive to cultural differences without falling prey to stereotypical assessments that rob clients of their individual histories and choices.
