About this book
This timely practical reference addresses the lack of Spanish-language resources for mental health professionals to use with their Latino clients. Geared toward both English- and Spanish-speaking practitioners in a variety of settings, this volume is designed to minimize misunderstandings between the clinician and client, and with that the possibility of inaccurate diagnosis and/or ineffective treatment. Coverage for each topic features a discussion of cultural considerations, guidelines for evidence-based best practices, a review of available findings, a treatment plan, plus clinical tools and client handouts, homework sheets, worksheets, and other materials. Chapters span a wide range of disorders and problems over the life-course, and include reproducible resources for:
- · Assessing for race-based trauma.
- · Using behavioral activation and cognitive interventions to treat depression among Latinos.
- · Treating aggression, substance use, abuse, and dependence among Latino Adults.
- · Treating behavioral problems among Latino adolescents.
- · Treating anxiety among Latino children.
- · Working with Latino couples.
- · Restoring legal competency with Latinos.
