Latino Families in Therapy: A Guide to Multicultural Practice (Guilford Family Therapy Series) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Presenting an accessible and original framework for thinking about multiculturalism in therapy, this comprehensive volume provides valuable insights and strategies for therapists working with Latino families. Practitioners and students gain awareness of specific clincial issues, family dynamics, and sociopolitical realities that are frequently shared by Latino clients, while at the same time learning to avoid stereotypical assessments that rob families of their individual histories and choices. Filled with evocative case illustrations and clinical pointers, the book represents an important contribution to culturally sensitive psychotherapy practice.

Synopsis:

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.

Synopsis:

This acclaimed work--now in an extensively revised second edition--provides an up-to-date conceptual framework and hands-on strategies for culturally competent clinical practice with Latino families and individuals. Practitioners and students gain an understanding of the family dynamics, migration experiences, ecological stressors, and cultural resources that are frequently shared by Latino families, as well as variations among them. Through many in-depth case illustrations, the author shows how to apply a multicultural and social justice lens to assessment and intervention that draw on each client's strengths. Creative ideas are presented for addressing frequently encountered clinical issues and challenges at all stages of the family life cycle.
