"Melvin Delgado provides a refreshing alternative to the old deficit approach to social service practice with Latino populations. I am sure this model will greatly aid in the development of culturally relevant evidence-based practices that will prove to be effective in addressing many of the health and social problems confronted by Latinos at the neighborhood, city, state, and national levels." - Mario de la Rosa, Ph.D., Professor, School of Social Work and Director, Center for Research on US Latinos, Florida International University
