Beyond the Hispanic/Latina/o Label: Counseling Students from Four Representative Nations
Hannigan, Terence P.
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v30 n2 p81-97 2016
Clinicians working with students of Hispanic/Latina/o background may tend to categorize these students as Hispanic/Latino/a regardless of their or their ancestors' country of origin. This article challenges the wisdom of using such broad terminology, because it masks considerable differences among Hispanic/Latina/o students, and proposes instead developing a more detailed knowledge about these students based on national differences. Due to space limitations, I will focus on four nationalities I am most familiar with: Chilean, Costa Rican, Mexican, and Spanish.
