Language is for communication and as far as it is open and clear, the process of healing the patient is accelerated and completed. Jacqueline Thrash s enormous effort to build up a bridge of communication through language is not only a wonderful tool, but also already a medicine for the healing of many Hispanic patients who will be grateful to a nurse, a doctor, or a therapist who is able to understand and tries to use their language. --César Vallejo, MA Spanish Literature: Golden Age, Profesor de español, Pasadena City College, CA.
Much more accurate and effective communication, assessment, and client care should be possible through the use of Common Phrase Translation: Spanish for English Speakers. This book can greatly facilitate the achievement of cultural competence and is, therefore, an excellent resource for all health professionals . --Lela A. Llorens, PhD., OTR, FAOTA, Professor Emerita, Department of Occupational Therapy, San Jose State University
As a prior student of mine, Jacqueline has demonstrated an exceptional scholastic ability and passion for research regarding the nexuses of language, culture and therapy. Her book, Common Phrase Translation is an example of this passion, and will be valuable to researchers, educators, and clinicians . --Michael J. Carter, PhD, Professor, Anthropologist; Glendale Community College, and LA Valley College.
