Hispanic Mental Health Professionals. Monograph No. 5.
Olmedo, Esteban L., Ed.; Lopez, Steven, Ed.
This volume is a collection of reports presented at a 1976 meeting held on the issue of Spanish American professional representation in the mental health field in the United States. Paper topics include: (1) Hispanics in psychiatry; (2) the current status of Hispanic social workers; (3) Hispanic psychiatric nursing personnel in the U.S.; (4) the status of minorities in psychology; (5) Hispanics in clinical psychology from 1970 to 1976; and (6) patterns of Hispanic representation among doctoral level scientists and graduate students. Stressed throughout the discussions is the need for professionals who speak the language and understand the cultural backgrounds of ever increasing numbers of Spanish speaking clients. Also included in this volume are summary analyses of the papers in Spanish and English, an editorial discussion of the major recommendations that resulted from the meeting, and an annotated bibliography of sources containing information on Hispanic workers in mental health and related professions.
