Summary

Add to your knowledge of Latino/Hispanic diversity, attitudes, behaviors, and experiences to provide more effective services!

Latino-Hispanic Liaisons and Visions for Human Behavior in the Social Environment dispels pervasive historical and contemporary misconceptions and inaccuracies and highlights the diversity of Latino/Hispanic experiences to help you provide more effective services to those clients. As editors Torres and Rivera point out, “Literature on Latinos/Hispanics reflects a dysfunctional and myopic cultural view in which they are often depicted in stereotypic characteristics and as a homogenous population.”

In Latino-Hispanic Liaisons and Visions for Human Behavior in the Social Environment, you’ll find chapters examining:
  • the social ecology of Mexican-American child development
  • caregiver well-being among Cuban and Puerto Rican mothers of mentally retarded adults
  • the adjustment process among Cuban refugee families
  • one Southwestern community’s efforts to create a multiethnic neighborhood coalition against substance abuse
  • a study of changes related to migration, family, and work in Caribbean women’s lives
  • and much more!
