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.

Book News Annotation:

Falicov (psychiatry, U. of California) presents her multidimensional ecosystemic comparative approach for therapists working with Latino families. After exploring the different migration experiences of the various groups, she then examines the effects of racism and discrimination, the role of religion and folk beliefs in family life, cross-cultural dilemmas, and the ever-changing forms of the Latino family itself. With a focus on issues that may arise in therapy, she covers topics including extended family and intergenerational hierarchies, how beliefs about gender affect couple relationships, childrearing attitudes and expectations, adolescent rites of passage, and the role of the elderly in Latino communities.

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.
