Peters, Michelle L.; Sawyer, Cheryl B.; Guzmán, Michele R.; Graziani, Cate
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v13 n1 p15-31 Jan 2014
Latino individuals who prefer to communicate in Spanish lack linguistically and culturally proficient mental health professionals with whom they can communicate effectively. This study illustrates the components necessary to facilitate the overall success of Latino, Spanish-speaking students in attaining advanced degrees in mental health services and developing them into competent bilingual service providers. Findings indicate that this shortage may be addressed with the assistance of higher education programs providing financial support, cultural and linguistic competency training, and both peer and faculty mentoring.
