Format: Paperback
Drs. Santiago-Rivera, Arredondo, and Gallardo-Cooper have produced a very handy guide to working with Latinos. These well-respected Latina psychologists focus their chapters on practical guidelines useful for any clinician or student in training. The book covers issues with Latinos in both broad and specific ways, including ethnicity-specific information on Latino subgroups where relevant, but also providing general information helpful with Latino clients of any background. Chapters focus on multicultural competencies, historical contexts relevant to understanding Latino families, and various counseling interventions. Appendices are offered at the end of the book, including a list of acculturation measures useful with Latinos, a glossary of terms, a culture-centered clinical interview, and bibliotherapy resources. The clinical interview provided is particularly useful for anyone looking for a culturally sensitive tool to use in clinical practice. This book is clearly written and well-organized, so that one may read through it from cover to cover or focus on those chapters most relevant to their work. I highly recommend this book to both novice and seasoned clinicians alike! It is also a great teaching tool.
